If you’re like me, you’re always looking for fun places to take your kiddos, especially during the summer. My motto? Keep ’em active, keep ’em happy! So take a peek at some of my favorite fun summer activities for kids in Orange County – bounce, splash, play and have FUN!
Aliso Viejo Aquatic Center (Aliso Viejo) – A beautiful aquatic center that features not only a 25-yard pool, but also an adorable toddler wading pool and a splash pad (see the picture above!)…overlooking a gorgeous golf course and views of the city. And the best part? You don’t have to be a resident of Aliso Viejo to enjoy this facility – guest passes are available (for purchase) to the public – check out rates and hours here.
The District (Tustin) – Eat, shop AND let your kiddos cool off at The District. Enjoy a sprinkle of pop-up fountains found right in front of the escalators leading up to the bowling alley and DSW Shoes.
Heritage Park (Irvine) – I have heard through the “mom grapevine” that this is a GREAT park for little ones – a fun playground WITH a splash pad. Run, play, splash and pack a picnic lunch – perfect for warm days and fresh air.
Pioneer Road Park (Tustin)– Check out this super fun pioneer-themed park that features two playgrounds, a water section for splashing, a basketball and volleyball court, and picnic areas – can’t wait to bring my little ones to play!
Irvine Spectrum – What an awesome place to bring the kiddies this summer. Besides the shopping, besides the restaurants, besides the movie theater, and besides the fun rides (bring your money for a train ride, a spin on the “big wheel” and the carousel!)…you will find a splash area in front of Target.
Time to Bounce!
Jump ‘N Jammin (Mission Viejo) – bounce, jump, climb, slide AND fire (soft) balls from a super fun second story tower – you can even purchase a summer passport for additional discounts – check it out!
Pump it Up (Lake Forest, Irvine) – inflatable bounce houses, slides, obstacle courses, oh my! Check out their individual OC locations for specific rates and calendars to see when you can stop by for a “pop-in family jump.”
Scooter’s Jungle (Aliso Viejo) – another adorable indoor bounce extravaganza – run, jump, bounce and slide during open toddler time and “all ages” play time…check out their location in Aliso Viejo for a calendar of open jump times.
I can’t wait to try out these bouncy fun places!
Frogg’s Bounce House (Fountain Valley) – more bouncing, running, sliding, PLUS a toddler gym, a kids playhouse, a train table, building blocks, Frogalina, a disco karaoke tiki hut, a Little Tykes fun car, frog books, bean bags, beach balls and Nick JR! Check out their hours and facility here.
