  • This park is huge and amazing. It looks great from the outside, has geese, and they even stock the lake with fish. The lake is a little dirty so that’s one problem. But other than that it’s a great park to go to and hang out with friends. Also, it’s close to lots of food places so after you hang out at the park you can go get some lunch. However, it is quite a long walk from the park to the food places so it may nit be worth it but it is always good to get the exercise in! Would highly recommend.
  • Another successful year celebrating Easter with a family reunion at the Laguna Niguel Regional Park. Once our own little ones, now the adult generation bringing their own kids (our grandkids). Lots of room to run, to play organized games, to fly kites. Beautiful scenery. Ample parking. Lots of convenient restroom facilities. For those who fish, great pond for fishing, and a station for cleaning fish. The only things I’d like to see changed are these: first, reduce the cost for entrance. Young families need places like these to take their families for a fun day. The park is paid for out of city, county, or state taxes, so $7 on a Saturday takes a large bite out of a young families budget. Secondly, the foot traffic needs to be reminded the streets are for cars. That they are welcomed to walk, push their baby strollers, or walk their leased dogs on the street, but to be responsible enough to know to move when cars come. Cars do not have the option to ride on the foot trails, etc. Maybe pedestrians should be educated to walk against traffic in order to be able to see the oncoming vehicles and move out of their way. Mommies and Daddies pushing strollers with the traffic, with earbuds in and music on, should be reminded to pay attention even more because their babies are possibly put in jeopardy. But the park, itself is wonderful!
  • This place is great! Lots of parking spaces, has a playground, and tons of geese waddling around 😂 This place would be great for a group of people to hang out and barbeque. There is also a trail alongside the park on the west, a great place for a run or workout!
  • Beautiful park, and perfect for reserving a picnic area for a party, which I have been down there for 1 of my little cousins' birthday parties. Very fun!
  • Huge lake with fishing from shore with license or
