Orange County Playgrounds Near Walking Trails

The playgrounds I picked for this list have walking trails RIGHT off the playground. You only have to park once and then walk into nature — or onto a walking path — or hiking trail from the playground.

Also, these ideas are NOT meant for a full-on hike. It's more of a way to extend the playground play by going to observe something in nature nearby. These trails make it easy to make some nature discoveries!
