For something close to home—and soon to be close to your heart—there’s always Fontana Park. This larger-than-life outdoor hub is only a short walk away, making playtime and quality time part of your regular routine. More than your average green space with walking paths, tot lot and picnic tables, Fontana Park comes complete with a 43,000-square-foot health and fitness center, an aquatics center with competition pool and water slides, a skate and BMX park and all manner of sculptures, play areas and even a park for the dogs.

Maybe you’re looking to be a little more nature-forward. That’s where North Etiwanda Preserve in Rancho Cucamonga comes in. Where rustic meets inspired, you’ll find the kind of nature trail to get your heart pumping and your wonder activated. A steady uphill path leads to gorgeous views and an incredible waterfall at the peak—and it’s not something you’re likely to forget!
When it comes to art and nature, Martin Tudor Jurupa Hills Regional Park is just the place. Imagine views of the city. Inviting dirt paths. And urban trail art that brings the experience to life. There’s no better place to set your sights on beauty in all its forms.
Sometimes a weekend trip is calling, and for that there’s Mountain Lakes Resort in Lytle Creek. Just 20 minutes up the road, this five-star camping and fishing resort is family-friendly in every sense of the word. It’s a lake for fishing, paddle boating and water adventures. It’s a campground for getting away and back to nature. And it’s nearby trails, outdoor activities and as much family recreation as you can handle.
