Seeley Park, Huntington Beach, CA

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIF.--On peaceful residential streets named Surfcrest, Vacation and Harborbreeze, a tucked in the tract park named Seeley provides a large lawn and something parents love most--a playground in the center of the park. This provides a great location for the kids to play and the parents to keep watchful eyes on their children with less fear of the kids running loose and into the streets nearly half a block away. The neighbors like the quiet place & pace, and hope to keep it that way.

Seeley Park is one of Huntington Beach's 70 some parks (and growing) that is mowed and maintained by the City of Huntington Beach.

Reminiscent of other neighborhood parks such as Central Park West and Hope View Park where bordering homes have built gates to access the park direct, the look and feel of the park is very organic, though we don't know for sure what types of chemicals and fertilizers (if any) are being used to provide the beautiful grass areas.

Seeley Park has no cell towers (thank goodness!) and enjoys picnic tables, park benches, a single basketball hoop for practice shots, plus stand alone swing sets for youth, including baby and toddler swing seats, as well.

Free street parking is adjacent to the park, and wide paved sidewalks offer a place to bring your kids to allow them to learn to ride a bicycle safely (as opposed to being on a street.) Shade trees in the park offer places for parents to sit or picnickers to enjoy a bite of food.

There are no restrooms in the park, however.  If you have to use facilities, you'll need to drive out of the tract and head for one of the fast food joints on nearby Brookhurst. There are dozens of them.

Getting there: We always take Banning Street and find the park by turning into the road mid-way between Bushard and Brookhurst on Tide Lane.  Turn right on Hightide till it dead-ends at Vacation. Voila! Seeley Park is in front of you! 

Nearby parks you'll also enjoy in surrounding neighborhoods include Eader Park and Edison Park with Edison Community Center.
