Description

Laureola Park is a great park. It has, arguably, some of the best athletic fields in San Carlos. It's also the only park located east of El Camino Real.

Since it's the only park east of El Camino, it's very well used by many groups. There is a basketball court, a ball field used by Little League in the spring and by AYSO soccer in the fall, a preschool, a great play area with a water feature, bathrooms, and a parking lot.

I was really surprised by this park. It's only 2 acres, but the play structures are wonderful. It seems for smaller parks, parks departments often don't have money to spend on big, nice structures. It's quite the opposite here. The big kid play structure is very cool. My kids had great fun climbing, chasing and sliding down.

The play area has the huge big kid play structure, a cool teeter-totter, a small fort play area for tots, a smaller structure for tots, shade, and four swings, two of which are for physically challenged swingers.

The water feature is cement with fountains that spray in a pattern. It operates May-October from 11-12 pm, 1-3 pm, and 4-7 pm. As my daughter found out, you need to memorize the pattern to avoid getting squirted in the face. She was still smiling though!

All of the kids really enjoyed playing in it, through it, and around it. Definitely bring some sunscreen, sun hats, and beach towels.

The water play area is closest to Bayport Ave. and the parking lot entrance is off of Old County Rd between two warehouses. Blink and you'll miss it.
