    20 Oct 2014 | 1:22 pm
    Carbon Canyon Regional Park in Brea is ridiculously fun. FOUR playgrounds lie in sprinting distance of one another – with views of a small lake. Bring a picnic and plan to stay all day for nature hikes and wildlife viewing. Kudos to Orange County for bringing the best in playgrounds to its kids. Directions to Carbon Canyon Regional Park in Brea: We took the 57 Freeway exiting at Lambert. If you’re traveling from the coast – it’s a right turn onto Lambert from the offramp (away from Brea Mall). After crossing Valencia Ave, Lambert turns into Carbon Canyon Road. The park…
  • Dennis the Menace Playground in Monterey, California

    Dennis the Menace Playground at the El Estero Park Complex in Monterey, California holds special memories for adults who played there in their youth. The park first opened in 1956!  I learned about the park from my friend, Connie, and took the opportunity to visit the first time we were in the area.  Because of new safety standards, the park isn’t the way everyone remembers it. But it’s still fun for little kids who don’t have any point of comparison. Directions to Dennis the Menace Playground: Coming from downtown Monterey, take Del Monte Avenue and turn right on Camino…

    I’m about to reveal some of Disneyland’s pumpkin secrets. Disneyland pumpkin carvers cut traditional Jack-O’-Lanterns to line the upper stories of Main Street storefronts.  So look up as you’re walking down Main Street. But if you head back to the Halloween Carnival at Big Thunder Ranch between Fantasyland and Frontierland during Halloween Time – you’ll have the chance to meet the carvers and watch them sculpt more artistic versions. The expert carvers only cut the outside layer of the pumpkin and sometimes use paint to embellish the design. My daughter…

    Ridgecrest Park in Aliso Viejo is a favorite for families because of all the play options. If you’re a sports player, there are tennis courts, a basketball court and a fitness course. Shade covers over the playground make it a nice option for summer. Views of Saddleback Valley greet walkers around the sidewalk loop. And there are plenty of green grassy hills to roll down.   Location: Right off Aliso Creek Road — so it’s most easily reached by exiting the 73 Tollroad at Glenwood Drive. Head towards Aliso Creek Road and turn left. Then turn left again onto Eastwing. …
  • Tamarisk Park in Lake Forest

    Tamarisk Park in Lake Forest is tucked up in the foothills above Trabuco.  The park was upgraded in Summer 2014 to remove the old-fashioned metal merry-go-round from “the olden days” when we were kids to a new Landscape Structures plastic spinner which looks reminiscent of a jacuzzi tub.  I wonder what will happen when it rains? The new park also has shade covers and a new restroom which are nice additions. The whole reason why I visited this park in the first place back in 2011, was because we were out exploring parks in Mission Viejo when I asked some moms for advice.  I…
