After a lazy Saturday morning, we decided to head out for an “adventure,” as we call them in this family. Unsure of where we were going, I headed South on Beach Blvd and made my way towards Huntington Beach. On the drive down, I decided we would finally go check out Harriett Wieder Regional Park, which I had previously read about on OC Dogfriendly.
We began our time at the park by heading towards the back of the park and exploring the little trails this Huntington Beach park has to offer. Its not as scenic as Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, by any means, but its still a great place to exercise our legs and let the boys get their sillies out.
One of the trail entrances was “marked” by blue chalk markings that someone left behind.
After we got enough of the trails, we headed back to the playground where Tuggy explored the two playgrounds at this park. While Tuggy played, Papa and I took turns checking things out around the park. They had this “edamame” bush that Larry found.
Who knows what it really is, but it looks kinda neat with plump Edamame like things growing on it.
The park had some really fun “spinning things”on the playground that made us giggle and get super dizzy. As we ventured on one side of the park, we saw a sign with some information on the history of the Bolsa Chica Wetlands area. We also spotted a cool cottonwood tree, that sprinkled its white flakey seeds all over the grass.
Its a newer park, with plans to expand in the future. For me, the fresh breeze, dirt trails, and cool playground made it worth the visit, but I would like to see what comes of it later. Tuggy’s verdict: He liked this “adventure” and would like to come back again.
