Cuesta Park




 

This is a fabulous park with a great playground in a nice area.  The playground area is surrounded by large, beautiful redwood trees.  There is a lot of playground equipment for the children.  It's also a great place to come for picnic.  The playground usually has a decent amount of children playing here.  My only complaint would be that you cannot take food into the playground area.  I like to pack lots of snacks for the kiddos during play dates.They seem very adamant about this because there were signs everywhere.  I understand that they want to keep the squirrel and rodent population down, so it would just be nice if people could be responsible for their own messes.  (I'm still rating this park highly though).



PARK HOURS -- 6:00 AM to 1/2 hour after sunset

BID KIDS PLAYGROUND

  • The big kids playground is located in the same area as the little kids playground.  The equipment is for kids ages 5-12 years.  It's very scenic here.  They do not allow food in the playground area which I find odd.  I guess they don't want to attract vermin in the kids area.
