With my son in Little League (tee-ball) in Anaheim, we’ve had the opportunity to check out a few more parks in the city. As Angels fans, we were really excited when our tee ball schedule brought us to Pioneer Park and we discovered the MLB Angels All Star Complex. This beautiful facility hosts two baseball fields. A regular sized dirt field and a smaller scale specialized tee ball field. The tee ball field is something I have never seen before! The ground is made up of the same rubberized foam flooring you see in parks, meaning NO dirt whatsoever. The turf is also color coated so it looks like a real field. Definitely a sight to see, and the kid REALLY enjoyed playing on it.
Pioneer Park is located in Anaheim off of E. La Palma and Sunkist and backs up to the 57 freeway. There are two play structures one designed for toddlers age 2-5 and the other for school age children with 3 levels for climbing. Both structures having slides, bridges and facades for rock climbing. There are also smaller objects for the little ones to play on like 3 rocking horses and a teepee to play in.
Something to think about – this playground has wood chips – I would recommend close toed shoes for all!
