WLAPOM's Favorite Enclosed Playgrounds

Updated: Apr 26


Pics: North Beach Playground, Santa Monica


Finding enclosed playgrounds is a great way to reduce the stress of an outing with multiples. The parks below have been highlighted by WLAPOM members as tried-and-tested easy spaces for you and your family to enjoy.


They include fully gated play areas that contain a combination of a sandy play area, play structure(s), and/or swings. Unless otherwise noted, information for each can be found at https://www.laparks.org/parks under the park or center name.


* Please check for park closures/repairs before your visit.

* If visiting during Covid, please check park rules and avoid peak times.
