Looking for fun playgrounds, sports fields, and lots of green space to run and play? Check out Wardlow Park in Long Beach with your kids for a tiny taste of nature int he big city.
There are a lot of great parks in Long Beach, but outside of El Dorado Park, you’re not gonna find lots of uninterrupted green space. Wardlow Park, however, offers lots of wide open spaces for families.
It’s unique in that it offers not only a regular playground and sports fields, but it can also give kids a glimpse of what life is like outside of the city with the treeline located along the west side of the park. Adults will see it as a way to hide the aquaduct. But kids are likely to see it as magic.
Kids can climb trees, play with sticks, and create forest “houses” complete with fire pits, forage for “food” and play “lost in the woods” for hours, if you’ll let them.
There’s LOTS of reasons to love Wardlow Park in Long Beach- but here are ours.
