Crush It At This Playground: Grape Day Park - Escondido

Crushing it at the playground!! 😂 🍇 Grape Day Park sure lives up to its name! You can even slide right through this bunch of grapes.✨ 🍇

This is a pretty big playground with lots of other fun climbing structures and swings behind this grapevine. (Swipe to see.) It's a registered landmark and home to the old train station 🚂 with historic buildings lining the edge of this park, like Escondido’s first library 📚 , an 1890’s Victorian house, barn & blacksmith shop, even an old tractor to climb on. 🚜


🚽 Bathrooms

🥪 Picnic tables

🦮 Leashed dogs are allowed

🤸🏻‍♂️ Horseshoe pits


There's a busy street in front of this park on N. Broadway. The park is set back a ways, but watch out if your kids like to run away...


🤸🏻‍♂️ Right across the street is the Children’s Discovery Museum in Escondido

🥡 Across the other street is my favorite Chinese restaurant, Chin's Gourmet - grab some takeout!

🎭 On this same lot is the California Center for the Arts - they sometimes have great shows & programs for kids

🏊🏻‍♀️ Next door is the James A. Stone Municipal Swimming Pool (25-yard swimming pool and small children's pool)

🕰 HOURS: Sunrise to Sunset


1. Side Streets

2. There's a parking lot behind the California Center for the Arts, sometimes you have to pay during an event and sometimes it's free. This parking lot is on N. Escondido Blvd. between W Valley Pkwy & Woodward Ave.

About Us

I'm a SAHM of 2 boys, but we rarely "stay at home". They have sooo much energy that we HAVE to get outside to burn it off. Everyday is an adventure; whether we find new places, go back to our favorites or even just a trip to Costco!
