Blue tunnel slide and big playground at Melinda Park in Mission Viejo

Highlights:

  • This park is easy to find and clean
  • For some reason, I always return to this post in October – so maybe I should say that October is an awesome time to visit?
  • I like that there are different slides available – twisty, 3 side-by-side, tunnel, and smaller slide for younger kids
  • The big piece of play equipment has some challenging climbers but it doesn’t feel too tall
  • There is a huge grass field for running around and playing ball
  • 2 bench swings, 2 “swing with me” baby swings

  • Massive covered picnic area makes it ideal for reunions or birthday parties
  • The play area is huge and has equipment for toddlers and big kids
  • Red standing teeter totter, ride-on motorcycle, and sit-on teeter totter are kid favorites
  • Steel mesh benches/seating areas spread throughout play area and walkways
  • Beautiful roses and sycamores surround the play and picnic areas

Be Aware:

  • Park is at the intersection of 2 busy streets, but the playground is set away from them
  • Watch drop points on taller playground if your little one is really little
  • I don’t know why – but it seems like every time I’m at this park the landscape crew is there, too. Maybe that’s why it always looks so pretty?
