La Mirada Community Regional Park is one of the most beautiful parks in Los Angeles County Parks. This 100-acre parcel of magnificently groomed land, purchased by the County of Los Angeles in 1956, has an 18-hole golf course surrounded by rolling hills and lush trees and is affectionately known as “The Grove” by the surrounding neighborhood. La Mirada Community Regional Park is also home to some of Southern California’s most famous adult softball leagues. The park’s 27-hole disc golf course is regarded as one of the best in the country and hosts professional tournaments on a regular basis.

The 18-acre park features a year-round competitive area with a 25-yard heated teaching pool, a 50-meter pool, and a warm water spa. The Buccaneer Bay waterpark, which is accessible throughout the summer months, is located in the family fun area and includes a lazy river, two-story water slides, tiny tot slides and play area, splash zones, and plenty of sitting and shade places.
The California DFG supplies the little urban lake with rainbow trout and catfish. Every year in the fall, there is also a kid’s catfish derby. Bluegill, largemouth bass, crappie, and carp are also present.
There are two play areas in the park. The first, nearest to the parking lot, offers numerous opportunities to climb, swing, and slide. The second, located behind the tennis courts, contains a variety of climbing and interactive activities for older children as well as engaging attractions for younger children.
Parties, reunions, and other group gatherings can be accommodated in two big group picnic shelter locations.
1.5-mile Walking Trail
The park’s walking/jogging pathways circle it, with plenty of sun and shade trees. Views of the lake, grassy hills, and the San Gabriel Mountains are available.
There is one full-size basketball court and two smaller courts that can be turned into three volleyball or badminton courts. Adult and youth leagues are available all year.
Outdoor Workout Facility
The training equipment is built to last and withstand all weather situations. The range of equipment allows for many types of workouts, such as strength, cardio-vascular, and so on.
Disc Golf Courses
The park’s two 18-hole courses, Lakeside and Backside, are the second in the world to have permanent baskets. This is often regarded as the best disc golf course in Southern California.
The park features four well-kept illuminated softball diamonds with refreshment stands.
There are 12 illuminated tennis courts and 6 handball courts at the public tennis center. Between the courts is a modest pro store. There are also private tennis lessons offered.
