Dinosaur Park aka Laguna Hills Community Park

Did you know that the Saddleback Valley is built on some of the richest fossil grounds in the country? I sure didn’t! We found this park a few years ago nestled next to the Laguna Hills Community Center, and until we parked and walked back in we had no idea how cool it was! We call it the Dinosaur Park, but it is officially the Laguna Hills Community Park.

This is a very large park and really lends itself to bringing a picnic lunch or take out dinner. There are plenty of covered benches and restrooms on site. It will be tough getting the kids ready to go home, because of how much there is to explore!

We love the large amount of dinosaur themed activities at the park including a full sized skeleton of a
Dinosaur for kids to play on and in. There’s a full sized wooden jeep for the kids to play in, three large turtle fountains, diggers, tunnels, baby play areas as well as big kids play structures. This really is a park for kids of all shapes and sizes.

The park is located directly across from the Ralphs and Starbucks at the corner of Paseo de Valencia and Alicia in Laguna Hills. (25555 Alicia Pkwy, Laguna Hills, CA 92653-5341)

Thanks for this post. I was going to this park for the first time today and wondered about it so it was nice to see some information on it.
I have 3 little ones in the mission viejo area, so its always nice to hear about a new park to visit that I didn't know about before.

Thanks for the compliment Omar! This is exactly why I started the blog! Keep reading because I'm working on reviews of a bunch of other South Orange County park reviews (we also live in the Mission Viejo area, so a lot of them will be in the area!).
