San Clemente Pirate Park for Yer Little Maties! (Forster Ranch Community Park)

San Clemente Pirate Park for Yer Little Maties! (Forster Ranch Community Park)

San Clemente Pirate Park best describes Forster Ranch Community Park because of  its deserted isle feel and pirate theme. There are palm trees, alligators and pirate ships. The safari Jeep is another favorite play piece.

Highlights:

  • Pirate theme
  • Great for imaginative play with pirate ships, safari jeep, palm trees, and alligators setting the desert island scene
  • The rolling log is lots of fun
  • Easy to spend all day here – appropriate for all ages
  • I’ve seen guys fly model airplanes in the grassy area (fun to watch)
  • Come here to celebrate September’s Talk Like a Pirate Day
  • 3 baby swings, plus one accessible swing near the restrooms
  • 4 bench swings

Be Aware:

  • Some structures are more appropriate for older children
  • One climbing apparatus on the back side of equipment
  • There is a school right next door – so school drop-off and pick-up times could impact access to the park
  • AYSO practices (games?) on upper field which can affect parking and increase playground “traffic”
