Burke Park next to the private Huntington Beach


Burke Park
Queens Park Lane and Netherway Drive
Huntington Beach, California  92646

This small park next to Sowers Middle School provides a close-to-street playground with sand pits and two Playworld Systems stations with slides and ladders. A swing set includes two baby swings and two regular swings. There's an open lawn for games adjacent to portable classrooms at award winning Sowers School. There's a long protection wall isolating Talbert Channel to prohibit access.  Talbert Channel is one of several concrete waterways named after one of Huntington Beach's founding families. The channel begins a few miles north of this location and heads south to the Pacific Ocean where it meets up with Huntington Channel just before the Santa Ana River at the border of Huntington Beach and Newport Beach.  Sowers Park and Sowers School are both bounded by Bushard, Magnolia, Adams and Atlanta. Parking is available curbside on Indianapolis Street where you should watch all young children exiting the car. Traffic along the street travels a little to fast for "runaway" kids.
