Looking for a place to play basketball, go for a hike or play disc golf?
Well, Central Park has all that and much more. Santa Clarita Central Park is the hub of outdoor activities including a disc golf course with nine baskets. There are four baseball fields and basketball courts. Plus, there are plenty of sports fields where you can play soccer, toss a football or fly a kite.
The park’s latest addition – tennis courts – are coming soon. Construction is already underway. Another addition that is coming soon to the park is a passive turf area where visitors can hang out.
If you want to work out while under the sun, there is an outdoor fitness zone. If you want to work on your cardio, there is a full cross-country course and hiking trails.
If you have a green thumb, there is a community garden where you can plant your favorite flowers or even your own fruits and vegetables. However, the community garden requires membership. The community garden offers all new members an orientation, gardening workshops and classes throughout the year. If you are a beginner at gardening or have experience, you have everything you need to succeed with your gardening.
You can do all these activities with your furry companions and even take them to an off-leash area just for them.
During the months of July and August grab your chair and blankets because there are concerts in the park. These are free concerts that take place on Saturdays at 7:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome to bring their own food but starting at 5:00 p.m. there are a variety of food trucks to eat from.
