If you’re like me and love the outdoors you will definitely appreciate the beauty of the city in the La Mirada Regional Park.

There are so many things to love about this place, there’s something for everyone, from frisbee golf, local fishing, tennis, swimming, to one of the most inovative child playgrounds I’ve enjoyed in a very long time.

If you love this park, it gets even better, parking and admisssion is FREE.
