Please help me welcome, Michele of Fun Orange County Parks. I don’t know about you, but as a mom to little ones, I’m always on the look out for new parks to check out. Although we definitely have our favorites we like to visit, it’s always fun & exciting to “play” somewhere new… that’s why I LOVE Michele & her website Fun Orange County Parks. Lucky for us, each & every month Michele features one of her favorite Orange County Parks here….

Dana Crest Park is generating a bit of buzz among parents in south Orange County because it’s smaller wooden structure was recently replaced.  I actually loved that play equipment and was a little sad to see it go. Little dinosaur fans will like the new addition, though. It’s a dinosaur fossil sculpture meant for climbing and crawling. It’s in smaller pieces — so it’s not as impressive for bigger kids.  The rest of the park is still fun for it’s quiet neighborhood setting, swings, and big kid play equipment.

See the slideshow and more OC playgrounds and play ideas at Fun Orange County Parks.


Thanks Michele! For a more detailed information about the Dana Crest Park (including directions, highlights & things to be aware of), or to find out about other local parks, be sure to visit Michele at Fun Orange County Parks.
