Belize Park Playground Review
Belize Park has a small structure, swings, and a few ride-on toys that have been left for community use.
The playground features a twisty slide and a lower side-by-side slide.
Belize Park is a small neighborhood park. It is the perfect stop while on a walk or for a short playdate with a few kids. Even better, pair it with a visit to other local parks in walking distance. Hunt Park is just 3 blocks away (0.3 miles). Mixtwood Pomona Park is 0.6 miles away. Make a day of it and explore all 3 parks. West Park is also only 0.6 miles away.
