Adventure Playground in Huntington Beach: Mud Heaven

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!

  1. How fun for the kids! Is the Adventure Park still in Irvine? I remember going to it when I was a kid. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hey Karen….we want to go again….let us know when you are going!

    Melissa….so funny about the picture. I hope it is okay that I have it on the blog. What a coincidence! See you at our next adventure..he he!

  3. Jill,
    you don’t know me, nor I you, but my sister just sent me a link to your blog and said it was awesome. As I perused it, I discovered that not only was it awesome, but you have a picture of my son playing in the sand with your daughter at Adventure Park in HB. I loved it. Tell me where you are going next so I can get into more shots.

  4. Hi Jill! I have never heard of this, but when I read your post to Drew he said that he went there as a kid. I think we may take the boys this week. THANKS!
    Would love to get together soon.

  5. We love this place! It is so fun!

  6. Omigosh, I CANNOT wait till my boys are older to take them here!! I know it’ll be here before I know it, but it can’t come soon enough, looks like a blast!!
