A reader recently emailed us asking for information regarding water play areas at local parks. We thought we’d go one step further & include all of the local OC parks that go “beyond the call of duty”. You know, the parks that have more than just your basic swing set & playground. Now you (& your kids) will never be bored with the same old park. (For more information on each specific park, just click on the park name & you’ll be transported to the city website.) Have we missed your favorite park or playground? Be sure to email us & fill us in!
