Redondo Park is the tot equal to Hardy Park. Together the parks are known by locals as Frog Park. They are known as Frog Park due to the Friends of the Greenbelt (FROG) efforts to raise funds and volunteers to construct the two parks at either end of the Rockridge-Temescal Creek Greenbelt.
Redondo Park is located one block past the DMV at the southwest end of the greenbelt and Hardy Park is located at Highway 24 at the northeast end of the greenbelt. Construction of both parks began in Sept. 2001 and ended in early 2002. I think it is wonderful to note that FROG recruited over 1,300 volunteers to build the parks; they raised $130,000 initially from the community and secured an additional $140,000 to complete the greenbelt; and to this day maintain the parks and greenbelt through regularly scheduled clean-up days. What a fantastic example of a neighborhood coming together!
Redondo Park is set in a grove of redwood trees with four wooden play structures and a sand pit. One play structure is a boat, one is a store/building, and two are towers with slides.
The park has a lot of shade and some benches for adults both inside the play area and outside next to the creek. The park is designed much like Hardy Park, but smaller. Keep in mind that it is a bit of a walk with young kids along the greenbelt between Redondo Park and Hardy Park.
