Los Osos Community Park, San Luis Obispo California

Description

Los Osos Community Park has a huge skate park that is a blast for kids. Younger kids can stand above the skate park and watch the action through a fence, which is a lot of fun for them. There is a fun space-age playground with plenty of opportunities for interesting climbing, plus a tire swing and baby swings. Kids can spend a long time without getting bored at this playground. Unfortunately, the tire bits that make up the floor of the playground smell toxic.
On the grassy slope above the skate park there's also a cute one-room schoolhouse, which dates back to 1872. When it was moved from its former location, love notes and pages from school readers were found hidden in its walls! When we were there, a group of people were setting up for a baby shower to be held in the schoolhouse- that must have been an adorable party. It's pretty to walk around this park and enjoy the views of trees in the distance.
A pleasant walk in Los Osos with views of Morro Rock is the Elfin Forest boardwalk. For a coffee in a serene setting, head over to Baywood Park Pier. For a fantastic experience in nature, gather rocks, sea glass, and abalone shells at Spooner's Cove in Montana de Oro State Park. For a fun place to eat dinner and hang out at a bookstore, head over to the Downtown Center in San Luis Obispo. Or enjoy a restaurant and a walk past seals in Morro Bay town.

The funny shed houses a county-owned well for water for the park grounds.
