Atlantis Play Center
Kids will have a blast here playing on the concrete animals or sliding down the slide in the shape of a serpent. All of the other expected playground amenities are here as well, from swings to jungle gyms. There are plenty of areas for picnicking under the trees and a picnic area for parties or large groups. Adults are not allowed without kids and kids are not allowed without adults so it's the perfect chance for a little together time and a good picnic.
I used to play at this park as a child, and now bring my own children. It's great that it's enclosed and adults can only get in with a child. There prices on birthday parties is an absolute steal, I think my son's next few b-day parties will be there. Maybe even host something for a girl scout troop at those prices. The park is very clean and the toys are mostly how i remember them. Lots of area to play.
We were very disappointed--the pictures on this site must have been taken years ago because it is much more run down now. There aren't all that many things to do and the area leaves much to be desired--we had a scary run-in with a drunk in the middle of the day. Don't waste your time--we certainly won't again.

My daughter and I went to Atlantis Play Center in Garden Grove, Ca. on December 6, 2008... We had got there at 2:00pm.
The Winter Fest didn't start till 3:00pm.
We didn't have any tickets yet...
Because they were SOLD OUT...
But, we were at least the 50 - 60th person in line...
The sign said, "They had 100 more tickets left."
I told my daughter, "We will make it inside."
The line moved up a little bit for maybe about 10 min.
Then it stopped....
I had to go up and I asked, "What Happened?"
They said, "They had NO more tickets!"
They SOLD OUT....The last 100 tickets that they had....
My daughter started to cry...
It was soo sad....
I think that if they do this next year...
That they should limit the amount of tickets that a person can buy....
A Staff member told me, "People were buying 8 - 10 tickets."
I didn't think that this was fair at all....
They should of asked, "Where are the 8 - 10 people that were getting the tickets?"
Limit it to 2 - 3 tickets per person...
Maybe they can have another Winter Fest at the end of December 2008...
My mother used to take us to this park when we were little. (1960's and 1970's.) She and her friend would pick a spot in the park to lay out a couple of blankets and our picnic lunch; this was where we knew we could find "home base". Because the park was enclosed it was safe to run around exploring each different playground, the rolling hills, walk ways, and of course the dragon slide. We LOVED it when mom told us we would be spending the afternoon here. What an awesome park. . . we all have such great memories of playing here. Thank you Atlantis Park for staying open all these years and hardly changing.
When I was little my dad would take me here. I have a faint memory of this place, I remember the entrance and somee of the park toys. When I joined Guardettes (Garden Grove's non-profit dance/drill team) my step-brother was real young and it was close to where we practiced that he would go play there to. This place is even better because there is a park with lots of grass outside of this park and when your done in the big park you can go play in the little park that is also really cool compared to the normal park. I will be taking my kids 3 and 7 to this park really soon!
Atlantis Park was my favorite park as a little girl. I lived in the neighborhood nearby. My brothers and sisters would go and watch the park as it was being built. We even crawled under the chain link fence one day to take a peek. We could hardly wait till opening day. It was a child's dream come true. It was free in the beginning and then it went to 10 cents. When I was in high school (1968) I applied for a job there and worked there for 4 years. It was the most fun job I ever had. In the summer we planned daily activities with the children. We had a tradition of doing the bunny hop with the kids at Easter, hopping throughout the park. A couple of years later my sister worked there also, she was one of the clowns at the birthday pavilion.
I am happy to see that the park is still there and I hope that children will enjoy this park for years to come.
This is a great place to take kids. Totally enclosed. Adults can only get in if with a paying child. The entry fee is nominal and worth it. I went as a child over 30 years ago. It hasn't changed much. Lots of room to run and play. The birthday parties they do are great and the price is right. They take care of everything. You just bring the kids and munchies.
