Pioneer Road ParkIf you are looking for a free place to cool down during the hot summer months, you might want to check out the western-themed Pioneer Road Park. It has a great water play area, two playground structures, swings, 3 chuck wagons, a large covered picnic area, and lots of greenery all around it.

The water area is a lot of fun with lots of spray features that come alive at different times such as pop-up fountains and water cannons.

Hours:

The water play area is open daily from Memorial Day to Labor day from 10am until 4pm.

Address:

Pioneer Road Park, 10250 Pioneer Road, Tustin, CA, 92782

Tips:

  1. If you want to escape the sun, there is a sitting wall around the water area that is mostly in the shade so parents can sit there while watching their kids have fun.
  2. When the water activities turn off you need to press a button to turn everything back on. So don’t think the splash pad is broken. Just look for the magic button.
  3. The parking lot is small, so I don’t even bother checking if I can find a spot; instead I park at the Salvation Army parking lot which is above and behind the park (if you are coming from Jamboree Rd, take Pioneer Road and then make an immediate left). There you can park next to the steps that take you down to the park.

Activities close by:

The Pioneer Road Park is very close the Irvine Regional Park. So you might make it a full day of fun and visit both. FYI, at the Irvine Regional Park, you can avoid paying for parking on Tuesdays if you are going to the Farmer’s market which is from 9am to 1pm.
