tennis court and picnic shelter at Huntington Beach Park

Peter Green Park is one of the newest, most kid-friendly parks in Huntington Beach. It features a playground of fun interactive stations, an upscale covered patio barbeque and tables, a tennis court, basketball court and volleyball court.

Peter Green Park is named after a former Huntington Beach mayor who served on the City Council and as mayor from 1990 - 1991 and 1998 - 1999. Peter has been known as a proponent of environmental programs and served as an educator for many years at Golden West College in Huntington Beach. The former priest from Oklahoma has made Huntington Beach his home for decades and lives with his wife, Cathy Green, who also has served as mayor of Huntington Beach.

The Peter Green Park is a spacious green park filled with many activities and things to do for all ages.  Located in Seagate, it is surrounded by Bel Air, Promenade and Greystone Keys home developments and as such, is the centerpiece for these single family homes just a mile or two from the beach and Pacific Ocean. Afternoons at the park are breezy and pleasant, just the perfect weather Huntington Beach is known for.

The finest park in Huntington Beach for toddler exploration (some believe Harriett Wieder Regional Park is tops), we like it because of it's colorful toys that invite youngsters to turn handles, read maps, and explore in an educational process.  Meanwhile just within reach of this fantastic playground of color and shapes, there is a covered patio (very upscale) for picnics, or for parents and grandparents to sit and relax in the shade and watch the kids play. A tennis court, sand volleyball court and basketball hoops make this park a multi-use, complete recreational opportunity for the entire family.

The park is a public park and can be accessed by anyone. It is located on Promenade Street near Main and Gothard.

Huntington Beach Parks

The City of Huntington Beach (California) is the caretaker and steward of the Huntington Beach public park system. Two departments involved with Huntington Beach parks are the Community Services Department and Park Maintenance. Park Maintenance is responsible for maintaining approximately 70 parks and public facilities, totaling 598 acres, 169 playground apparatus and irrigation systems. 

Park Maintenance is also an integral component in special events in the City, closely working with Community Services to set up for events and activities that take place on or near park facilities. Community Services not only handles the rental of the park facilities but also operates programs for the public that include softball leagues, exercise classes, cooking, dancing and other types of interesting and fun things to do. For more information on park maintenance call (714) 536-5480.  For information on park facilities or to make a reservation call Community Services at (714) 536-5486 or the phone numbers provided on the featured parks pages.
