Ultimate Fun at Pattinson Park in Huntington Beach

Posted by on Jan 25, 2016 in Featured, Huntington Beach, Parks | 0 comments

It is not just the beaches that are worth driving to Huntington Beach for, but also their great parks. The city has parks around every corner, and they are always clean and not too crowded like parks in surrounding cities. Over the weekend, we visited the kids grandparents in Huntington Beach and then spent the rest of the afternoon at Pattinson Park. The park was easy to find, and parking was a breeze. The only thing missing at this park is bathrooms, so make sure you stop at a local restaurant before or after visiting the park. The highlight of the park are, of course, the play structures. The park has one giant play structure with slides galore. Like always, my kids didn’t want to leave. There is also a smaller play structure for younger children, but it is...

Adventure Playground in Huntington Beach

Posted by on Jun 28, 2014 in Huntington Beach, Parks, Summer | 7 comments

Remember the days when we could ride our bikes until the streetlights came on? Adventure Playground will be open to the public from June 19 – August 18, 2017. For most of my younger childhood, I grew-up living in the community of Beacon Bay in Newport Beach before we moved to Harbor View Homes (aka. The Port Streets). The best memories I have from growing up in Beacon Bay was building forts under the docks, and playing in the dirt until my hands were black. My mom and her friends would be inside playing bridge while all the neighborhood kids ruled the streets on our Huffy bikes. Things have changed, and my children are growing up in a society where they have to be more protected and sheltered. They can’t explore the world in the same way that I...

Peter Green Park in Huntington Beach

Posted by on Jan 27, 2014 in Featured, Huntington Beach, Parks | 0 comments

Whenever we go to visit my in-laws in Huntington Beach, our kids always beg us to bring them to play at Peter Green Park in Huntington Beach. This park is one of our favorite parks in Huntington Beach, and it is almost impossible to get our kids to leave because they are always having so much fun. The best part about this park is the giant play structure. Our kids imagination goes wild while playing on this two-tiered play structure. There are slides going out of each side, and the climbing options are endless. There is also a smaller play structure for the younger kids, and a giant rock wall. There are other types of climbers, giant games and turtle statues for younger climbers. The park has a decent size swing set (although most kids are captivated by the...
