River Park

Imagine River Park

The City is in the initial planning phase for an exciting new project: River Park. The site is sandwiched between the Angel Stadium parking lot and the Santa Ana River, with the Santa Ana River Trail running through the middle of it. It can be accessed from Orangewood Street to the south, or the Santa Ana River Trial from the north.

This site presents a unique opportunity to improve existing trail conditions and connect people to an important natural resource, the Santa Ana River. We welcome your input as we design the park and seek grant funding.

Check out the Design Concepts below and take our Survey to let us know what you like!


The DISCOVERY concept includes smaller play areas and fitness stations scattered along the secondary trail. There are two small, shaded plazas at either end of the trail.

Concept B - BIG

The BIG concept includes one large, centralized play area with larger play features. The play equipment can include tall towers or climbing structures. This concept also places all of the fitness equipment into one large area.

What could it look like?

In the city of Anaheim, typical nature park amenities include shaded rest areas, native landscaping, interpretive opportunities, and other improvements planned through community involvement. 

Anaheim Coves


Tell us what you would like to see at this park.

Here are some things to consider:

  • Think about nature - this site is similar to Anaheim Coves, with the Santa Ana River alongside it and lots of wildlife all around.
  • Think about recreation features - what types of things would make the park fun, beautiful, and safe?
  • Think about location - where should amenities be located within the park?
