Prehistoric Playground

Prehistoric Playground

During the development and construction of the Laguna Hills Community Center and Sports Complex, the design team researched and collaborated with a paleontologist and various artists to create a paleo-adventure playground that reflects the historical significance of the area. A replica of fossil reef has been recreated by the playground bridge and has imprints of actual fossils that are over 15 million years old. Under the bridge, a 70 million year old fossil repilca of a Hadrosaur is imbedded into the bridge wall, along with fossil pieces of a saber toothed cat, duck-billed dinosaur and mammoths. The prehistoric playground contains fossils – real and replicas – that represent a rich diversity of ancient life from the changing Laguna Hills environments. To walk across the playground is to walk through time. By enjoying the many paleontological features located throughout the playground, visitors can discover the ancient life that walked, swam, and flew thousands of years ago in the Saddleback Valley.
