Adventure Playground

Since 1983, Adventure Playground has offered summer camp opportunities and school-year programming to children throughout Yorba Linda. Adventure Playground is a unique site that provides children with an open space to play freely, where their imagination inspires the creation of activities, building structures and forts, and games. Adventure Playground's renovation was completed in 2023 and is a 2.5-acre site that features a play structure, splash pad, waterslide, zipline, wiffleball field, fort building area, covered shelter, onsite restrooms, and other amenities. The site can be divided into two areas, a northern and a southern section, to create flexibility for programs and special events while still providing public access on a year-round basis.
