Flintride Park in Ladera Ranch

Posted by on Nov 4, 2013 in Featured, Ladera Ranch, Parks | 0 comments

While my son was at his first Junior High pool party in Ladera Ranch a couple of weeks ago, my younger son and I spent the afternoon playing at Flintridge Park in Ladera Ranch. Ladera Ranch is home to so many parks, but Flintridge ended up being one of his favorite parks in the community. He spent the afternoon climbing on the monkey bars, speeding down the slide, and digging in the sand. Flintridge Park is located at the corner of Chardonnay Drive and Sauvignon Drive in Ladera Ranch. It is located right behind the Flintridge Community pool, and parking is available in the parking lot or on any of the surrounding streets. The park is at the top of a steep grassy hill and has two play structures; one for bigger kids, and one for toddlers. There is...

Last week, after spending the day at Founders Park in Ladera Ranch, we decided to make a quick stop at Chaparral Park in Ladera Ranch.

Around every corner is another fun orange county park in Ladera Ranch. Last week, we went to visit Founders Park in Ladera Ranch, and it was a great park to spend the afternoon. There was lots of green grass, for my son to kick the ball, benches for us to eat a snack, and plenty of shade. Where is it located? The park is located at 28275 Avendale Boulevard, right off of Antonio. There is a large amount of parking, and lots of covered picnic tables with barbecues. One of my favorite features of this park is the nice (and clean) public bathroom. The park features a medium size climbing structure with a swing set. There are some small rockers for the kids to play on, and lots of sand for sand toy play. What my son loved the...
