Wilderness Themed Tamarisk Park in Lake Forest

Tamarisk13

Tamarisk Park in Lake Forest recently underwent a major renovation leaving a fun wilderness theme park for families to enjoy. The park is tucked away in the Lake Forest community and backs a beautiful nature trail. When we were on our way to Tamarisk Park, we made a quick stop at Peachwood Park before continuing our way up the road. When we arrived, we parked on the side of the main road and took the twisty staircase down to what would become our new favorite park in the area. It was clean, brand-new, and we seemed to have the entire park to ourselves (on a weekend too!)

The park features a large parking lot (and plenty of street parking), a large field, baseball field and the playground. The playground is a fun wilderness theme complete with mushroom stairs, wood log slide and hidden animals on the play structure. There is a large play structure with multiple slides and smaller play structure for toddlers. My kids favorite ~ a tire swing and a spinning wheel. There is so much attention to detail put into the design of this park right down to the tree stump benches.

We all know that it can get hot in Lake Forest, and the city didn’t forget that by adding a large shade covering over the park. The bathrooms are located just a short walk away near the parking lot, and there are plenty of drinking fountains to keep your toddlers hydrated. After your kids are done playing at the park, then you can take them on a short walk along the nature trail that backs the park for incredible panoramic views of Orange County.
