Guide to Bluebird Park in Laguna Beach

BluebirdCanyonPark4

One of my favorite parks as a kid was Bluebird Park in Laguna Beach. What I love the most about this park is that the same play equipment that I played on as a child is still at this park. They have added more play structures, but the giant space ship play structure is the same as it was in the early 80’s.

Where is this located?
Bluebird Park is located at the corner of Cress Street and Bluebird Canyon Drive in Laguna Beach. Parking is a bit tricky, and you have to be extra careful getting the kids out of the car if parking on Bluebird Canyon Drive. There is a small parking lot at the Laguna Beach YMCA that can only be used on the weekends. The YMCA is right off of Cress Street.

What makes this park special?
It has the coolest slides that are built right on the hill. There is a large grass area for the kids to play, and lots of gym equipment for them to climb. My kids favorite is the giant space ship! They could play for hours pretending that they are little astronauts.

The park has some outdoor barbecues and benches in the far back corner of the park that are rarely used. If you want to bring some barbecue supplies, this would be a perfect park to enjoy a summer picnic with your family.

Insider Tips..
The park has a cool path with a fun bridge for kids to ride bikes and scooters – so bring their bikes! There are also lots of tunnels to crawl around and trees to climb. There is a separate play area for younger children to explore with plenty of swings to go around.

Safety was always a concern at this park when I was younger, but it is safely gated now so that parents can watch their children play without the concern of them running on the busy Bluebird Canyon Road.
