Marblehead Park in San Clemente

Marblehead Park in San Clemente

Marblehead Park in San Clemente is right near Marblehead Elementary off Avenida Vista Hermosa.  I’ve passed by it many times and always wanted to stop.  The peek-a-boo views of the ocean were just as great as I expected.

Location:  Exit I-5 at Avenida Vista Hermosa and head inland. The park is 4 streets up the hill on your right.  Turn right on Via Turqueza and park along the street.  MAP TO MARBLEHEAD PARK IN SAN CLEMENTE

Highlights:

  • It’s right off the freeway and the directions are easy for meeting someone from San Diego
  • It has an ocean and canyon view
  • Restrooms right near the playground!
  • There’s a short fitness sidewalk loop – not always within view of the playground
  • The big kid equipment was good for climbing and the twisty slides felt high off the ground
  • Merry-go-round and climbers
  • My kids put on pretend shows at the shady amphitheater

Be Aware:

  • Full sun on playground, so it can be hot. A few trees near picnic table. We picnicked in the shade near the small amphitheater. (It can be cooler and overcast here, too – since it’s near the beach.)
  • Upgraded play equipment in 2016.
  • I have a feeling this place is busy at drop-off and pick-up times at the neighboring elementary school.
  • No swings.
