We found over 15 Pirate Parks in Orange County! Some have a pirate ship shaped playgrounds and others just have a pirate theme.
Some pirate parks are near the beach and others have surfacing that makes them look like they are floating in the water.
I hope this helps you find a park with a pirate ship out there somewhere near you!
Pirate Parks in Orange County
This is the first and (so far) only list of Pirate Parks in Orange County! Thanks to everyone who contributed their ideas on my @ocplayparks Instagram Story.
Seabridge Park and Beach in Huntington Harbour
Seabridge Park and Beach in Huntington Harbor not only has a pirate ship, it has a full beach and ocean view!
Heritage Park in Tustin
Heritage Park in Tustin comes with Ahoy Maties signage and pirate flags. Perfect spot for a pirate birthday party.
Ocean Breeze Park in Laguna Niguel
Ocean Breeze Park in Laguna Niguel has a name to match its pirate theme.
Clipper Cove Park in Laguna Niguel
I love Clipper Cove Park in Laguna Niguel because it truly feels like a pirate ship surrounded by water!
All Inclusive Huntington Beach Playground
This pirate ship is at an All Inclusive Huntington Beach playground on the sand. Wheelchairs can make it up ramps for pirate play.
Aliso Beach Park in Laguna Beach
Aliso Beach Park is a classic pirate ship where kids can look out over the breaking waves at the beach.
Florence Joyner Olympiad Park in Mission Viejo
The Olympiad Park pirate ship is pretty nice for preschoolers.
Harry M. Dotson Park in Stanton
I especially like the Dotson Park pirate ship because its black! And I love the details of the X marking the spot and the treasure chest.
Pirate Park in Bellflower
This pirate park is not officially in Orange County, but it's close to a lot of north county cities. It is really small and really unique!
San Clemente Pirate Park / Forster Ranch Community Park
Forster Park was the first park in OC I went to with the nickname of pirate park. The name fits and there are even palm trees and alligators in the sand.
Courtney's SandCastle Universal Playground
Courtney's SandCastle is another spot for accessible pirate play! Video in this post so you can see what else the park has to offer!
Box Canyon Park in Yorba Linda
Another accessible pirate ship with ramps and wide lanes on the play structure.
Rush Park in Los Alamitos
Rush Park in Los Alamitos has a cute little pirate ship with big R's on the sails!
Heritage Park in Irvine
Thanks to the reader on Facebook who reminded me about this pirate-themed and nautical playground in the heart of Irvine. There's even water to play in here!
Newport Dunes Playground
This playground has a pirate ship and a whale! Plus, it's right on the beach so how can it be more pirate-y than that?
There are a few more to add to the list of Pirate Parks in Orange County. These are posts I still need to update with new photos since playgrounds have been updated from when I originally posted:
14. Shipwreck Park in Dana Point (new playground in February 2022)
