The Most Magical Park of All

Tucked away in the canyon of Laguna Beach lies our very favorite place to spend time, Bluebird Park. This park is like no other — a perfect juxtaposition of modern play equipment and lush vegetation. My kids adore it; heck, I’m completely smitten. Two separate playgrounds, a huge lawn for play, hidden bridges and staircases in tucked-away corners … all surrounded by gorgeous green hills covered in mature plant life.

It is magic. Truly magic.

Take a look for yourself.

A sprawling lawn for play.

Play equipment that looks like modern art.

A separate play area for the wee ones.

Super fun (and fast!) slides.

Gorgeous vegetation throughout.

A secret bridge surrounded by bougainvillaea.

And the piece de resistance, the rocket ship.

The views aren’t so bad from the top of the rocket.

Am I right?

And I can’t forget a local favorite, the lovely glass mosaic turtle. My children have spent many a day playing on this beauty.

We’ve created so many memories at this park over the years — birthday parties, making new friends, pretend play … we just have such a soft spot in our hearts for this park. Which is why I’m excited to announce the “America Is Your Park” program by Coca-Cola. In a nutshell, Coca-Cola is giving you the opportunity to vote for your very favorite park, with the winning park receiving a 100,000 grant. Pretty amazing, right?  ($50,000 for second place and $25,000 for third as well!)

I’m definitely voting for our magical Bluebird Park, and you should vote for your favorite too! All you need to do is visit America Is Your Park, use the interactive map to find your favorite and vote for it! Easy peasy. Of course, you can also rally additional support from your friends and family on Facebook and Twitter. You can vote for any park your heart desires from May 23rd, 2012 to July 15th, 2012. Good luck and good park-hopping!
