Heilmann Regional Park Splash Pad Atascadero Review - 12

Heilmann Regional Park Splash Pad, Atascadero

The Heilmann Park Splash Pad is the only FREE splash pad in the North County. It’s located at  the larger Heilmann Regional Park and Playground at 9400 El Bordo Ave. in Atascadero.  The splash pad is situated right by the restrooms. The waterplay spot super small, but very popular with littles.Readers on my Facebook Page say the splash pad is NOW ON for summer 2019.

Cuesta Canyon Park, SLO

Cuesta Park has got to have the most beautiful creek in all of SLO. It also has a fun bridge to cross, a nice hiking-without-actually-hiking feel and a playground kids love.The only things I don’t like about it are sometimes there’s a lot of homeless people hanging out there, and the playground ground-cover is made of smelly black pieces of rubber. Aside from that, grab a pal and check it out because it’s really woodsy and pretty.

Review: The newly renovated Barney Schwartz Park – As Seen in PASO Magazine

The new play equipment is bright, fun and offers a fairly diverse set of play structures. Among them are some really great nature-inspired tree stump steps, large boulders connecting the climbing decks and a fun ring twister to stand on and spin. The kids were also excited to try out the cascade climber, which features foothold cutouts on a series of panels to encourage kids to climb up, down and sideways.
