Description

We had a blast at Russell Park. Tons of grass shaded by huge gnarled oak trees awaits you for ball games and running. But the best part of all is the new playground. Here colorful animal designs uplift you and a perfectly designed structure make for some hilarious fun. Our baby absolutely loved crawling through one tunnel while I crawled through the other and surprised her on the other side. The top of the structure is nicely enclosed in most places so baby can't just walk off it like other structures (some parts are open though). There is a large rock-climbing arch. And baby swings. And there are two awesome see-saws that surprise in that they are paired diagonally. I was surprised that no one was here at this fantastic park even though it was the weekend.
After playing at the park, head over to The Promenade in Westlake Village, a beautiful mall with belltower, stained glass lamps, fountains, murals, flowers, mega bookstore, and restaurants.
Another nice playground in this area with rolling green hills beside a creek and a new playground with space net, boulders and ropes is Conejo Community Park.
