Tustin Sports Park is home to tennis courts, baseball diamonds, basketball courts, a picnic area, and a SHADE-covered playground. Its bright red color makes it feel festive and happy. A number of families were there on a hot weekend morning when we visited. Thanks to the family who took the time to recommend this park (I marked their comments in quotes).
Location: Tustin Sports Park is very easy to find right off Interstate 5. Drive towards the foothills past the huge Tustin Marketplace shops. The park is a left turn onto Robinson plus a very obvious left turn into the parking lot. [Address: 12850 Robinson Drive, Tustin] MAP to Tustin Sports Park in Tustin

- The “big play area with canopy” is definitely its biggest perk. No battling hot slides or overly sweaty kids.
- It’s a “full sports park”
- “Nice seating area with grills for picnics”
- “Full walking/running path with distance markers”
- My family loved the slides – steep, twisty, spiral, tunnel. All the fun ones!
- 2 bench swings and 2 baby swings (not under the shade cover)
- Some slippery spots from the sand on concrete and sand on recycled rubber
- During large sports events/weekends, I can see this place would be packed with people.
- Parking in a dedicated lot – no fee
- Sand and recycled rubber play surface
- Picnic area is set away from the playground
- Very nice restrooms in the big building near the Express Sports Cafe
- Drinking fountains near the restrooms and on the other side near the baseball diamond
- Shade under the playground cover and over viewing benches
- Easy to view kids from almost every angle
- I was told the vending machines don’t work. Every time the mom I spoke to tried them, she lost her $.
- The Express Sports Cafe hours are M-F 5pm-8pm and Sat 10am-4pm.
- Lighted tennis courts, lighted basketball courts, and lighted baseball diamonds.

- Nearby “no TV” restaurants: Chik-Fil-A and In-n-Out are both nearby on Jamboree, but we often grab a sandwich from Sprouts Farmer’s Market deli and picnic at the park
