Heritage Park Play Island

If you are looking for a super fun park to take the kiddies, I have to suggest Heritage Park in Cerritos. it is like no other park i have been to. well maintained and very clean. And the cool thing about it, is that it has it’s own adventure island. Yep an island with a little play village. and even better, it’s free.

On Heritage Park Island there is a ship, merchant shops, a church and school house. and in these little buildings are monkey bars and slides! there are also secret passage ways, a moat of water surrounding the island where you can find turtles (we found 16!), a waterfall with koi fish and canons to pretend your invading this colonial village! the park is open at all times, but the island is only open from 10:00 a.m. – to dusk.
Here are some pictures from our visit…
We had a great time enjoying this park and hope to go back soon!
happy playing,
