Unique park next to the Orange County Fairgrounds. Southern portion offers two streams cascading down a hill through some "rapids" and waterfalls into a series of ponds featuring fountains in the middle. Numerous mature trees frame the area and offer shade. Ample paved concrete paths available with little bridges over water features. Decent amount of ducks and geese around. Picturesque.... More

This is one of the best parks in Costa Mesa. Plenty of play ground equipment, picnic tables, bathrooms, small la with water fowl the best part is the play equipment is on spongy foam so kids don't get hurt and easy on my feet!

This is a perfect park for just about ALL OCCASSIONS! We have performed weddings here, taken our children and now grandchildren to feed the wild life and play in the incredible playground they have. Great place to just lay out a blanket and relax! Beautiful surroundings, well kept grounds and lots of fun!

This park is a great place for children to play for several hours. It has a large play structure with many features for climbing, running, hanging, and sliding. The surface beneath the structure is a soft rubber material with lots of cushion and traction; perfect for running for little children. The park also has a man-made stream with rocks positioned...

My granddaughter calls it the red park because some of the play equipment is red. The best part is the equipment sits on soft foam. There is a sand pit with fun toys for the children. There is also a water fall small lake with ducks and at times Canadian geese. Picnic areas, tennis courts,skate board area, and baseball field.... More

Good spot for a bit of exercise, if you have kids, a skateboard is a must, they have an excellent area for the kids to try out. Lovely up and down walk area with water fall and lazy river stream to see

Great park. A few years ago they renovated the playground area and it is great now. Several structures and apparatuses to play on. A huge hill runs through the middle of the park that is great for climbing and playing on. There is a lake on the other side of the hill from the playground that is fun to walk... More

We live just down the street from Tewinkle Park and often come here to bike, play, and geocache. Well maintained, beautiful park! There's great play equipment and large lawn areas to run around, play catch or picnic. There are a decent number of trails as well for bike riding or just walking. Terrific place! There is ample parking and restrooms... More
