I'm separating this review into a few categories just because there are different aspect that are good/bad depending on your needs. This is a cute park when you a tiny tots who aren't fully walking yet. The rubber turf makes for easy play without getting super dirty but there's a small sand pit that's contained. The pond and walk path... More

What a great park! We came here for a birthday party and would definitely go back if we lived closer. There is a wonderful play area for kids with slides and swings, lots of green space and plenty of areas to picnic. In addition, the park is very beautiful with lakes, hills and even a waterfall. There were Canadian geese,... More

The playground is great for all ages and even has disabled access. It can get really crowded on the weekends and after school hours. The duck pond side is fun too and the kids especially like climbing the hill in between the playground and the pond.

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
