2439 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90403
A park in Santa Monica with gated playground, ducks and mini skate park.
Little ones will love this park, and there are even tennis courts for the big kids!
On a strip with multiple coffee and sandwich options, is Douglas Park in Santa Monica. The fun thing about this park is its multiple man-made ponds that have little rivers to connect each pond. And in them, DUCKS! Super fun for kids and they're alongside a bunch of rock formations great for climbing. For a more secluded form of entertainment, there is a gated playground area with a sand floor. The playground, located between two tennis courts, has four structures with big kid and baby swings.
In between the playground and the ponds is a restroom with a changing table and a mini skate park. Great for little kids and tweens. There is plenty of metered street parking (no meters on Sundays), making this excursion stress free. In addition, across the street, there is Bru's Wiffle an acclaimed breakfast, brunch, lunch spot known for their chicken and waffles. However, there are so many options on the menu, it'll be great for the whole fam.
