Santiago Park Archery Range in Santa Ana


My kids have always dreaming about learning how to do archery. After spending time at the neighboring Discovery Science Center, we will often go to the Santiago Park Archery Range to watch people practicing archery. Last week, when the kids and I were sitting on a park bench watching everyone play archery, an older gentleman came up to us offering to teach my kids how to do archery.


He told us to wait a moment while he went to his car to get supplies that he had for kids, and returned with a smile and arms full of everything the kids needed to learn how to do archery. It was like a dream come true as the kids spent hours with the man teaching them a sport they have always wanted to try. The kids were laughing, smiling, and within just an hour they were hitting targets on the board.


When it was time to leave, the gentleman pulled out a Disneyland button from his pocket and gave it to my daughter Ella. That was when we learned that he works at Disney California Adventure Park during the World of Color show at night, and he told us to come visit him the next time we are at the park.



The gentleman was truly spreading the magic of Disney by bringing happiness to children around Orange County with his kindness, and my kids can’t wait to return to the archery field to see him again.


If your kids have an interest in learning how to do archery, I recommend coming to this park to see if you run into the same gentleman that we did on this special day. He said that he loves helping children to learn the sport, and will more than likely, happily help your children try archery too!


The Santiago Park Archery Range is located 600 E. Memory Lane in Santa Ana, right behind the Santiago Park Nature Preserve.
