Belmont Park in Orange was one of those “Hey, let’s look at a map and find a new park to check out!” finds that has been added into our normal park rotation.
It’s up in the hills and provides some amazing views, making it a little more exciting than the average park.
Picnic benches and large shade trees are sprinkled throughout the park, and a paved path winds in a wide circle around the playground and a large grassy field.
Thank you to volunteer park scouts and moms, Lisa (back in 2011) and then Erika (in 2022) for visiting Belmont Park and providing their reviews and photos for this post! All of the “Highlights” and “Be Aware” sections are from their perspectives!

It’s special for the large grassy field. We come here for that field especially – to try our new toys like flying things, kicking a ball, or just space for running! After Christmas other families had the same idea and it was sweet to see the kids trying out their new toys.
Two play structures, one for the toddlers and one for the bigger kids.
Fun, different monkey bars for the older kids.
1 bench swing and 1 baby swing.
Picnic benches – some with views overlooking Orange County.
Shade trees that beckon for a picnic blanket to be spread underneath them. My three-year-old likes to run from tree to tree here, pretending he’s a bird.
Long path that loops around the entire park, perfect to walk or ride around. (The scooter path is great, although a little steep so I’m usually running alongside my kids!)
My kids love balance walking along the small retaining wall.
