Huntington Beach, California parks

There are approximately 70 parks in the public park system in Huntington Beach offering mostly green lawn areas, picnic tables, children's playgrounds with the newest Playworld Systems safe equipment that usually includes stations with ladders and slides and a separate swing set in soft, cushioned material or a sand pit. Most swing sets (not all) have baby swings and regular belt swings for children and adults. Some of the parks have basketball courts, volleyball courts and a few have tennis and racquetball courts and clubhouse facilities. Also included in the public park system are three skate parks, an historic Newland House grounds and barn facility rental, wedding and event function facilities and the huge cornerstone of the park system, Central Park with over 350 acres of facilities that include a disc golf course, equestrian center, lakes, restaurants, library, dog park, nature center, outdoor amphitheater, indoor theater, meeting rooms, library, summer adventure playground and more!

While most parks offer picnic tables, the majority do not include grills on site. We were told by a park official that you may bring your own grill but for safety, should never place it on a table or near group sports activities and near children's play areas where it would endanger children. Restroom facilities are not available unless mentioned.
