Poinsettia Playground

6600 Hidden Valley Rd, Carlsbad, CA 92011




A newly renovated playground, Poinsettia is a lot of fun for a variety of ages.

Just a stone's throw away from Legoland, in Carlsbad, lives this wonderland playground. Newly reopened in September 2019, this playground is one of the coolest spots you'll see in San Diego. It offers different play age group areas and has a truly fresh approach. Your kids will be running up and down little mountains throughout the playground and enjoying a modern spin on oldies like the merry-go-round and monkey bars, along with a rock-climbing wall that leads to a slide. The playground is also surrounded by grassy fields, basketball courts, a soccer field, a baseball field and a picnic area with bathrooms. You won't be disappointed stopping here.

If you're looking for a place to eat nearby, head towards Palomar Airport Road and you'll have multiple options, including Karl Strauss, Draft Republic and the locals' favorite - In'N'Out.
