“Burning off some energy!”
Review of Sunny Fields Park

Sunny Fields Park
Ranked #13 of 58 things to do in Solvang
Attraction details
Reviewed July 9, 2012

After visiting downtown Solvang and trying to keep the kids contained as much as possible, we decided to come to this park so that my 3 kids (8, 5, and 4 year old) can run free and burn off some energy! What an great themed park! The play structure is fairly new with clean bathroom facilities. We went during a relatively cool day but if you happen to visit the park during a heat wave, the kids (and parents) can cool off in parks water misting area. There is even a separate play area for kids under 5 years old but it doesn't keep the bigger kids from entering into the area.

I'm so glad I did my homework and found Sunny Fields playground. My 3-year-old was ecstatic, which makes for happy parents.

Every kid has been to the typical metal and plastic playground. They climb the ladders, go down the slides, and spin the wheels that don't turn anywhere. They're a dime a dozen and you'll find them in any major town. But not like this. The wooden structure and hand-painted towers scream NEW and EXCITING to your little one. They've never seen anything like it before, and they just HAVE to explore every nook and cranny of newness they can find. And don't let the wood fool you. The place is new and clean and the bathroom facilities are much better than you'd expect from a public park. In fact, instead of a men's room and a ladies' room, I think there were just like 4 or so "family bathrooms" side-by-side-by-side.

The misters were interesting, if cold in February. I liked the tightrope walk, which is something you don't see anywhere else. And I really liked the big chair swing, so baby could sit in Daddy's lap and go for a ride.

So much of Solvang is for the parents, from food to wine to shopping. If you're going to drag your kids along, don't they deserve a special visit to somewhere just for them?

Great new park with play structure architecture that reflects the roots of the Santa Ynez Valley. Clean, modern facilities, and the park will be even nicer when the many young trees mature.

We passed by Sunny Fields Park, which is not far off Mission Drive, by chance and saw that it had a great playground, so stopped by with our 18 month old daughter and ended up returning two more times over the weekend. The playground is within a small park, which also has a baseball diamond, picnic tables and clean bathrooms. The playground itself is designed around a Viking theme and is one of the nicer playgrounds we have ever visited. If you are looking for something to do with the kids for an hour or so - and choices are surprisingly limited in the Solvang area - Sunny Fields Park offers a great and apparently little-publicized option.
