Castle Park


If you’re look for a day of family fun and entertainment with a bent on spending some time outdoors, look no further than Castle Park in Sherman Oaks (http://www.laparks.org/shermanoaks_castlepk/index.htm). Part of the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, Castle Park is located along Sepulveda Blvd in Sherman Oaks. This multi-function entertainment zone has opportunities for hours of fun. Make your first stop the miniature golf course. It’s $6.50 for adults and $5.50 for children 12 and under, and seniors. Tie game? A rematch will only set you back another $3.00 each. You can choose from the landscaped courses with 18 holes each and a number of exciting and challenging obstacles. If you’re an early bird and make it before 10:30am, you can also get in a game for just $3.00.

After the mini golf, or instead, if you’re better with a bat, head to the batting cages and get in some swings. The cages offer both baseball and softball pitches and balls come at you at speeds up to 80 M.P.H. You can rent equipment or bring your own and play by the round (30 pitches) for $3.00 or by time, 30 minutes for $24.00 and 60 minutes for $42.00. If it gets a little warm outside, head in to the arcade for a break from the sun and try your hand in the arcade. You can purchase tokens in a variety of amounts and if you win tickets, cash them in for goodies at the prize counter. The arcade feature new state of the art games and classic favorites from the past.
