Shiffer Park in Costa Mesa


I have driven past Shiffer Park a hundred times while going back and forth to South Coast Plaza, and never took the time to stop and finally check it out until this past week. It is right next to the popular street Bear and is very limited on parking but big on fun!



Once we found a parking spot, the kids took off playing on the giant play structure. The structure is separate from the swings and conveniently located right next to the bathrooms. The only downside to this playground is that it is right off a major street – parents with little toddlers need to spend time keep a careful eye on their kiddos.



Don’t leave the bikes at home. This park has a massive pathway with lots of twists and turns throughout the grass. Your kids will have endless fun riding their bikes, and then stopping to have lunch at one of the many picnic tables located around the park.



If your kids like sports then they’ll love the full-size beach volleyball court and handball courts. The fun doesn’t stop there – there is a separate play structure further away from the street where younger children can have fun playing.



Tips: This park is perfect for parties and gets busy on the weekends. Early on the weekday mornings there is a boot camp that works out in the park. If you’re looking to get fit while your kids play then come and check it out.



Location: The park is located off Bear Street in between the 405 freeway and 73 freeway in Costa Mesa.



What to bring:
Bikes, balls, sand toys, lunch/snack
