New Lake Forest Sports Park


The parks in Orange County just keep getting better, and the all-new Sports Park in Lake Forest is one of our new favorites. Located right across the street from Saddleback Church, the park features multiple sports fields, two playgrounds, hiking trail, an indoor basketball court, and more!!

When we first arrived at the sports park, we had a little trouble locating the playground. We drove all the way around the park until discovering it at the back of the sports park next to a roundabout. When first arriving, follow the sign that says, “recreation center” to find the playgrounds.

There is a small playground (not as busy) in-between two baseball fields. This smaller playground is geared towards younger children, but my older kids were still entertained by the play structure. There is a spinning lily pad that my kids could not get enough of and two structures with plenty of shade. Once the baseball field open, there will be a snack bar next to this cool is that?

Then there is a popular playground located next to the recreation center. This play area has two levels for older and younger children. My kids could have played at the park all day because there was so many things to do. There were rocks for climbing, slides, swings, and more. Everything was nicely spaced to accommodate the large crowd of kids who were playing.


Inside of the recreation center there are multiple rooms for classes, a computer lab and indoor basketball/volleyball court. Kids can check-out balls at the recreation center to use throughout the sports park and sign-up for classes.

The park has a ton of covered dining areas that are perfect for birthday parties complete with outdoor barbecues. There are also a lot of very fancy seating areas for moms to relax while watching their kids play at the playground. Did I mention parking? You don’t have to worry…they planned well when designing this park to include a massive parking lot.

Once your kids are done playing their favorite sporting game or playing at the playground, there is a nice hiking trail where your family will discover beautiful city views at the end of the trail. It is a dirt paved trail that is smooth enough to accommodate strollers too!

The park is located at the corner of Portola Parkway and Rancho Parkway in Lake Forest. Have fun creating memories with your children at this beautiful new Orange County park.
