Guide to Central Park in Rancho Santa Margarita

Central Park Rancho Santa Margarita

Rancho Santa Margarita is a great little city filled with a lot of secret magic.  I call it secret because it feels like not everyone has discovered how great RSM is.  From great restaurants to parks and trails, Rancho Santa Margarita is filled with fun for everyone.  The parks are lush and beautifully maintained making it a favorite area for our family; here is your guide to Central Park in Rancho Santa Margarita.

Central Park Hours

Central Park is located at 30824 La Miranda in Rancho Santa Margarita California. The park itself is very large with fields for games and general open areas as well as the play area.  Central Park is filled with lush green spaces that catch your eye from the moment you arrive.

Kids Playing at Park

Central Park in Rancho Santa Margarita is one of our favorite parks because it is well shaded.  There is a parking lot as well as plenty of street parking available.

Bathrooms at Central Park

Restrooms and water fountains are located close to the play structures and parents can see these from the benches allowing children to use the facilities with independence if deemed appropriate.

Play Area at Central Park

There are two separate play areas which we really enjoy.  A smaller play area keeps little ones safe while providing a great range of activities.  This park gets our vote because little children will not feel like they are on “baby” equipment.  There is also a small train to play in which allows for creative play, a fun game of house, and a place to sit in the shade if desired.

On the other side, a larger play area is provided for older children up to the age of 12.  Another reason we love this park is because older children do not become bored with their play options.  The equipment is fun and truly appropriate for the ages recommended by Central Park.
