Aliso Viejo Community Park

Aliso Viejo Community Park

Aliso Viejo Community Park is centrally located along the border of Aliso Viejo/Laguna Hills next to Aliso Viejo Middle School. However, it’s at the end of a dead end street so it can feel quite isolated and quiet.  This is one of the few playgrounds I can think of with a fenced-in toddler area.

Location: Laguna Hills Drive turns into Aliso Viejo Parkway when it crosses Moulton. Head up the hill on Aliso Viejo Parkway after crossing Moulton and turn left onto Cedarbrook. Follow Cedarbrook down the hill into the parking lot before you hit the elementary school at the bottom of the hill.  Alicia Parkway is probably the closest freeway exit.

  • Lots a places to wander: baseball diamonds, walking trail, 2 separate playgrounds, the school yard
  • Fenced-in toddler area – let the kids run free
  • Little motorcycle ride-on toys in toddler area
  • Fun caterpillar-shaped ladder in the big kid area
  • Lots of swings (4 baby swings in the toddler area) plus 6 bench swings at the 5-12 year old area
  • Shaded playground and shaded picnic areas
  • Access to the bike trail along Aliso Creek

Be Aware:

  • I went to photograph this park at around 3pm on a weekday and it was MOBBED by teenagers waiting for after-school pick-up. I tried to turn around once I realized my mistake and it took me 1/2 hour to get out of there!
  • I would imagine it can get busy during baseball season with 3 diamonds
  • There are signs warning of rattlesnakes – just keep your eyes out during the summer

Nature Connection:

  • Great stop on a family bike ride
  • Access the trails along Aliso Creek and go exploring
  • The nearby school has a large field clear of obstructions for kite flying

About the rattlesnake signs, yes we saw one this week during soccer practice. They are endangered so do not kill it if you see one or you can get a citation. Call animal control and have them remove it.

This is a great park. Yes it can be busy at school release but otherwise it's fun!!! If you do go during Softball games, the snack bar is usually open.

Looking for a great workout for the New Year? The walking trail at this park leads into the Aliso/Wood Canyon trail. My husband and I used to take turns playing with the kids at the park while the other one took off to run/bike the trail for awhile. Notice the "used to" part? Looking forward to adding it back to our "must do" list in 2010!
