we are very excited that Adventure Playground is open for the summer.
here are pictures from one of our trips last year, in case you missed it:
we went to Adventure Playground in Huntington Beach. paradise for kids who like to get dirty, play in the mud or build things. i have been trying to take my boys there since last year. and i actually remember going when i was little.
so, we finally made it to Adventure Playground. i wasn't sure what to expect because i couldn't find much info about it on the internet. but you should have seen my boys eyes when we arrived. rope bridges, mud slide, tire zip line, forts to build with tools, a lake with rafts to float around on. just like Tom Sawyer. little boy heaven.....although there were even more girls there.
we got there around 1:00 when all the day camps were leaving. the weather was great...not to hot. i guess this june gloom lasting into july can have benefits once in awhile. it cost $3 per child...a great deal! we went with a small group of friends and enjoyed ourselves for almost 3 hours.
pictures from our adventurous day
this is the pond where you can float around and balance on a raft. it is not deep at all, maybe 2 feet. this was the little ones favorite activity.
then there was the building area where you can check out real tools. saws, hammers and nails. if you use all your nails, you can earn more by helping clean up. this was the boys favorite activity. you could tell they had dreams of building grand forts. *wink*
don't forget the mud slide.....wheeeeeeeeeee!
and even little girls can have fun! look at this little cutie who tagged along with our group of boys.
what a fun, fun day it was. we will be returning this summer for sure!

p.s. parents, plan on playing with your kiddies. some activities need parents help. (yes, i left my baby at home with grandma for the first time....but it was a nice break to spend time with just the older boys)

This looks like a ton of fun - thanks for sharing!
This place was ok. Staff was nice but potter potty sick!! No washing hands area. I don't even want to know how many kids pee in that pond.
Yes....it would be great for them get a better bathroom system. I took the kids into the main park to the bathrooms after, and brought a ton of baby wipes with me. I was disappointed they took the tire zip line down this year, but my boys still totally loved it. Boys....figures ; )
