South Orange County Playgrounds and Parks Index

South Orange County Playgrounds and Parks Index

South OC parks and playgrounds represent about half of my blog posts. They’re featured heavily on this site, because I’m lucky to have so many recommendations. If you live in south Orange County, please recommend your favorite parks so I can build on your insider information!

I’ve also provided links to south OC regional parks and city park pages at the bottom of the page.

 South Orange County Playgrounds

You can visit South Orange County playgrounds and parks to see an archive list of ALL the parks, but it’s a pretty lengthy list.

Aliso Viejo Parks

Dana Point/Capo Beach Parks

Laguna Beach Parks

Laguna Hills Parks

Laguna Niguel Parks

Lake Forest/Foothill Ranch Parks

Mission Viejo Parks

Rancho Santa Margarita

San Clemente Parks

San Juan Capistrano Parks Regional Parks

Our regional parks require a $3-$5 entrance fee – but they are worth every penny!

Buy your annual pass online. I recommend the $55 County Regional and Wilderness Parks Parking Pass unless you are a regular at the Salt Creek Beach Park in Dana Point. In my humble opinion, that would be the only reason to spring for the $80 All County Parks and Beaches Parking Pass.
