Best Rock Climbing Parks in Long Beach

While our kids love rock climbing gyms, let’s be honest, it can add up to take a family of kids all the time. So when our kids are itching to climb, but our wallets aren’t up for it, we hit up one of the many parks in Long Beach featuring climbing elements.

Fortunately, many of the parks in Long Beach have had some amazing upgrades recently and rock walls are now a staple at many parks. Here are some of our favorite parks for climbers.

  • Reservoir Park – My kids literally call this “Rock Climbing Park” for it’s many simulated natural rock climbing opportunities.
  • Lincoln Park – This one is unique because there are rock climbing areas and HILL climbing areas, which are a whole other activity that kids love!
  • Los Cerritos Park – ladders, rock walls and even tree trunks designed for you to climb make this a great park for climbers.
  • Junipero Beach Playground – while this park doesn’t have traditional rock climbing, it’s by far the best park for serious climbers.
