Boysen Park is an Epic Airplane Park in Anaheim
My son loves planes. Ever since he was little, he has wanted to be a pilot in the Navy when he grows up. Whenever there is something related to aircraft, I love to share it with him and enjoy watching his excitement. When my kids had an early dismissal from school, I surprised him by taking him to an epic airplane park called Boysen Park in Anaheim.
The minute that we arrived at the park, he screamed with excitement. The moment that I opened the car door, he ran right across the grass to start climbing on the giant air force jet. The airforce jet replica has a wing that serves as a ramp to climb onto the plane and also as a slightly bumpy slide. The entire time that we were at the park, kids were climbing all over it.
It is not just the giant plane that my kids loved but also the rocket ship themed play structures. There are two structures themed as space ships. The kids were deep in imaginary play while climbing into the “rocket” play structures. There was a larger one and a smaller one offering something for every age of child visiting the park.
The one thing that caught my eye was how clean the bark was at the park. It looked like they had just put in the fresh bark, but there was some graffiti on the play structures. Some homeless people are hanging out at the park, but they were good about keeping a distance from the playground, and my kids didn’t even notice that they were there.
There are two sets of swings, a small climbing wall, and plenty of grass for kids to run around. There are bathrooms, lots of picnic tables, barbecues, and a drinking fountain. There is not a lot of shade at the park, so I recommend bringing extra water, wearing plenty of sunscreens and bring a hat along with you too.
Enjoy bringing your kids to this epic OC Park. It is located at 951 S State College Blvd, Anaheim, CA 92804.
