Travis Ranch Youth Park: Plenty of Play Panels and Room to Run

Travis Ranch Youth Park: Plenty of Play Panels and Room to Run

Travis Ranch Youth Park is typical of Yorba Linda playgrounds. You can drive along Yorba Linda Boulevard and only spot houses and retail. If you get just a tiny bit off the main strip, you’ll find a treasure trove of playgrounds and shaded parks. It’s just beautiful there! I always get that old California rancho feel.

Location: If you’re familiar with Yorba Linda, you’ve probably passed Travis Ranch School which fronts Yorba Linda Boulevard. Turn onto Via De Escuela and drive to the T-intersection. Turn left on Dominguez Ranch Road. The park (and parking) will be on your left. (Address: 21305 Via Del Parque, Yorba Linda)  MAP TO TRAVIS RANCH PARK IN YORBA LINDA

Highlights:

  • Two play structures – one for 2-5 year olds and one for 5-12 year olds.
  • Triple racing slide and a fast tunnel slide! The tunnel slide was so fast it actually spooked my toddler the first time he tried it.
  • Fun rock climbing wall with cool dinosaur fossil pattern underneath. My toddler was actually able to climb up this rock wall without help – usually they are too difficult for him.
  • Plenty of play panels – including fun truck panels complete with windshields and steering wheels on the smaller structure.
  • Two baby swings and two bench swings.
  • No shade on the play structures – but large trees provide shade on the outskirts of the playgrounds.
  • Really easy to see the kids and keep them within sight on the playground and field.
  • Take a nature stroll along the perimeter of the field. We found lots of pine cones and even spotted a bunny.
Be Aware:
  • This playground is located next to sports fields – it could get busy during games.
  • The larger play structure has an opening with a ladder in the center – something I always have to keep on eye on when my toddler is playing.
  • No sand box.
Checklist:
  • Dedicated parking lot.
  • Bark play surface with a wide expanse of lawn for ball sports.
  • Snack bar that appears to open up during youth sports.
  • Picnic benches and planters to sit on right near the playground.
  • Picnic tables with grills.
  • Restrooms and a drinking fountain right near the swings.
