And so it opened. The almost $32 million new San Clemente Sports Park, the Vista Hermosa Sports Park is a dream come true. This shouldn't be called a park, as it is more than that. It's an amazing sports complex, with an incredible aquatics center, universal access playground, three baseball fields, two soccer fields, a football field and a multipurpose field within its 45 acres.
Everything has being finished with attention to details. Hundreds of kids were delighted in the playground, the Courtney's SandCastle's sailing-ship structure, its castle structure or in the aquatic play structure in the fun pool, with water slides.
A couple of features of the park we were impressed by:
Courtney's Sandcastle's: is a very special playground: it is a 30,000 sq ft universal-access playground and it serves children of all abilities, and is especially designed for children with physical, mental and sensory disabilities. The playground will also help disabled adults who can use the playground features for therapeutic purposes. Phase 1 is now open and phase 2 will include a sensory garden with aromatic plants, a musical pathway and several water features.
San Clemente Playschool: a new program for kids 3-5, ran by the city of San Clemente at the park, that includes theme activities with sessions full of music, art, games and story time.
Spring Break Active Adventure Camp: looking for something for your kids for spring break? Swimming, water polo, soccer, flag football, trail hikes and more and part of the activities programmed. For $180 for the whole week, April 9-13, this is a great program at the Aquatics Center.
Some other programs that are scheduled to open are an Arthritis Exercise Program, a 60 minute combo class by Karna Fitness, and many programs as part of the water fitness:
- Aqua Boot Camp
- Aqua Zumba
- Water Aerobics
- Aqua Pilates
