Rick Gomez Park: This gem of a park just opened in early 2022 and families have been enjoying the space ever since. Named for hometown hero Rick Gomez who served as Park and Recreation Commissioner for 26 years, the park features an oversized baseball-themed play area with giant gloves, baseballs, and bats to climb over, as well as a traditional play structure. (7501 8th Street)

Ralph B. Clark Regional Park: This 104-acre property offers loads of different recreation opportunities like fishing in the stocked lake, hiking and biking along the trails, and picnicking under the many trees. Little paleontologists will love visiting the Interpretive Center where they can explore the many fossil specimens and learn what Orange County was like in the past. Want even more? There are multiple playgrounds, tennis courts, sand volleyball courts, and softball fields available. (8800 Rosecrans Ave)

George Bellis Park: Dog parents love this spot to bring their four-legged family members to run around under the California sun. There's a designated area for large dogs and one for small dogs as well. Five lighted ball fields, lighted basketball courts, and a children's play area are also available. Bring your friends and set up in one of the picnic areas and enjoy a friendly game of horseshoes. When it's time for some exercise, there's outdoor exercise equipment here. (7171 8th St)

William Peak Park: Skateboarders know that this is the spot to head to in Buena Park for some free fun. Open daily from 8am to dusk, the skate park requires helmets, knee pads, and elbow pads. The park is also home to the Silverado Days Festival that's held in the fall. With 15 acres of family fun, you'll find lighted basketball courts, horseshoe pits, a picnic area, and children's play structure. When the summer heat is on, the large aquatic pool is the perfect destination (a small entrance fee applies). (7225 El Dorado Dr.)

Larwin Park: Everything you want is available at this park and it's the shaded children's play area with large sandbox that has families coming back again and again. Bring your lunch and set up at one of the picnic shelters or covered picnic benches. Let the kids run around in the large grassy area and bring your dogs too as this park is dog-friendly. Other amenities include a running track and lighted basketball court. (6150 Ball Rd)

Henry Boisseranc Park: Summer brings the tunes to this park for the Summer Concert Series and in the spring it's the Spring Eggstravanga where families can enjoy a pancake breakfast and activities. Kids will also enjoy bouncing on the grasshopper before they head off to explore the two play structures. Athletic equipment includes ball fields, lighted basketball courts, tennis courts, lighted handball courts, and an aquatic pool that is open during the summer for a small entrance fee. There are a number of picnic areas with BBQs available. (7520 Dale Street)
