We love being located in Norco—there are so many great amenities here, including some stellar parks. The city of Norco operates 15 parks, each with their own mix of amenities. Before or after you stop into the Field House for a bite to eat, take some time to enjoy one of the great parks that Norco and surrounding areas have to offer. There’s something available for just about every outdoor interest. Here are our top park picks in the area.
Community Center Park
Located at 3900 Acacia Avenue, the 15-acre Community Center Park offers a lot. The Riley Gymnasium is a big draw, of course, as are the game room and rec room. A large auditorium is available, as are a wee people preschool and a lighted ball field.
Doty Trust Park
Just a short 10-minute drive from Norco is the Doty Trust Park, located off La Sierra Avenue in Riverside. This scenic park is nestled at the base of the surround hills and features great views. Doty Trust park features a small water park, perfect for a warm afternoon. Other features include a playground, picnic area with grills, and walking trails with exercise equipment.
Ingalls Park and Equestrian Event Center
The City of Norco’s prime city-run park, the Ingalls Equestrian Event Center offers everything the equestrian enthusiast might want. It’s an impressive facility to be sure, but all amenities are equestrian focused. No playgrounds or hiking trails here.
Pikes Peak Park
Just a stone’s throw from Ingalls, Pikes Peak Park is a more conventional choice for families. With two large playgrounds, horseshoe pits, a half-court basketball court, and a great gazebo, this park is great for a family outing. Pikes Peak Park won a 2008 Award of Excellence for park design from the California Parks and Recreation Society.
When your park outing is finished, be sure to stop in to the Field House for a satisfying meal. Located in the Silverlakes Equestrian and Sports Park (another great park near Norco), the Field House is serving up culinary delights sure to please park goers of any age.
