Adventure Playground in Huntington Beach, California Provides Kid-Friendly Summer Fun

 Adventure Playground Reservations: (714) 842-7442  Address: 7111 Talbert Ave., Huntington Beach, CA

,  M-Sat 10am-4pm: $3 per child. All adults are free


Some call it mayhem. Some see it as a cesspool of germs that simply make them cringe. However you look at it, Adventure Playground in Huntington Beach is one of THE most popular attractions and activities for children during the summer. And for kids it is the important learning ground for practical things that maybe they can't do in normal life. Building rafts, forts, sliding, climbing across a rope bridge, and steering a raft with a stick are just a few of the activities that children participate in during their sessions at this Central Park playground, contained in a fenced area and open only during the summer.

From pretending you're Tom Sawyer to simply exploring nature, kids come to this outdoor adventure with only a few requirements such as wearing close-toed shoes (for safety), and bringing a spare change of clothes contained in a plastic bag for cleaning up and leaving the premises in good working order.  Operated by the City of Huntington Beach parks department, the attraction is so popular that youth from around Southern California attend Adventure Playground as there are few remaining such places in all of California.

Huntington Beach Adventure Playground in Huntington Central Park east of the Library includes Rafting around the pond,  balancing across the rope bridge, building with hammers & saws and splashing down the mud slide.

Hours: Monday through Saturday 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM. Closed Sundays.

Suggested age is 5-12, but they don't turn anyone away due to age.

Children under 10 are required to have parent or guardian supervision, especially at the tire swing and in the building area.

Families or groups of less than 10 children do not need to make reservations.

Groups of 10 or more and birthday parties must make reservations. To ensure there will be room, make reservations early in the season. Due to space limitations, tables can only be reserved for Saturday birthday parties and only one table per party. 

Everybody must be wearing closed-toe tennis shoes (sneakers) or stronger covering the entire foot. Children wearing water shoes, jelly shoes, or sandals will not be permitted to play. 

wood donations are appreciated: 2x4, 4x4, plywood, pallets, or any wood that the kids can use to build treehouse structures.

Needed are a few more hammers and saws. Donations are tax deductible.  Bring your own lunch or buy a variety of candy and soda for a small fee.  The kids will get dirty. There's a shower and a changing area, so bring extra clothes, a bag, and a towel.  Beach chairs or blankets are recommended for adults who want to watch, but participation is encouraged.
