Devendorf Park is Carmel’s central gathering place, from plein air painting, Veterans and Memorial Day remembrances, to the annual tree lighting in the park. J. Frank Devendorf known as the Father of Carmel-By-the-Sea gave the land to the city; his grandson remains in Carmel-by-the-Sea – Jack Galante, a purveyor a bold red wines. The park occupies the block at Ocean and Junipero Avenues. This well-maintained urban oasis is shaded by several massive live oaks. Flowers accent on of the entry points at the corner of Ocean and Junipero. Year-round, Carmel holds special events in the park to mark the holidays. There’s breakfast with the Easter Bunny, the exciting Fourth of July Party, the Halloween Parade, and a festive Tree Lighting with Santa.
