Planes, Hiking and Adventure at Kite Hill in Laguna Niguel

Posted by on Jan 11, 2016 in Featured, Hiking Trails, Laguna Niguel, Parks | 1 comment

I know a super cool place where I can take the kids from time to time and escape life’s daily (understandable) pressures. The kind of pressures we all face like: the unending carpool lane at school, or the mind numbing time spent waiting on the phone for an answer from the insurance company while the kids are in a heated spat. Or the feeling the refrigerator is a bottomless pit and you need to return to the grocery store a third time that week after you work all day, only to have the kids inform you, “Mom, we are OUT of food again!” All of these so-called pressures are small when we compare it to the bigger picture of life: keeping a family together and giving them some “outdoor” exposure to our ever changing world. As a mother, I...

Crown Valley Community Park Splash Pad

Posted by on Jul 13, 2015 in Laguna Niguel, Parks | 1 comment

Laguna Niguel has gotten a little cooler this summer with the newest addition of their splash pad at the Crown Valley Community Park. We couldn’t wait to check out all the fun happening at this newly refurbished park so the first day we got home from our road trip, we headed over to the park for some summer fun. The new splash pad is even more fun than we expected with tons of water features for the kids to splash and play. The splash pad area is very small and limited to 60 kids at a time, but it does have a lifeguard to help monitor the kids. The only downside to the splash pad is the shade – it gets HOT very quick. I recommend parents bringing an umbrella to keep cool while the kids play. Since the...

Niguel Heights Park in Laguna Niguel

Posted by on Jun 1, 2014 in Featured, Laguna Niguel, Parks | 1 comment

One of our favorite parks to visit in Laguna Niguel is Niguel Heights Park. The kids love to ride their bikes around the large paved path, have a snack under the beautiful trees and climb on the giant play structure. The park is lush with beautiful trees, bright green grass and fragrant flowers. Where is it located? The GPS address is 27832 Niguel Heights Blvd., Laguna Niguel, CA 92677. It is right next to a neighboring school. Parking. There is plenty of parking along Niguel Heights Blvd, and there is no parking lot. Play Structures. There are two play structures and one small swing set. On the large play structure there is a lot of climbing, bridges, monkey bars, rock wall, and my kids favorite – a mini-piano. The smaller play structure is still big enough for, the older...

Guide to Fishing at Laguna Niguel Lake

Posted by on Jan 9, 2014 in Events, Featured, Fishing, Laguna Niguel, Parks | 2 comments

Have your kids ever dreaming of fishing? It is officially trout season, and the Laguna Niguel Lake is filled to the rim with big bountiful trout for your kids to try catching. I have tried fishing once with the kids by myself without any luck, so this time we planned an afternoon for the boys to bond with their grandpa while fishing. We are so lucky to have so many great fishing destinations right here in Orange County, and the Laguna Niguel Lake is one of my favorite places for families to spend the day fishing together. What we didn’t expect was that the boys would come home with one of their biggest catches ever totaling 11 trout! Where is it located? The Laguna Niguel Lake is located right inside of the Laguna Niguel Regional Park. There is a...
