LAKEPORT PARKS & POOLS
WESTSIDE COMMUNITY PARK
Parallel Dr, Lakeport
This park has lots of open space for children to run.  There are soccer and baseball fields, but when there are no games going on it is highly likely that you'll have the place to yourselves. There are paved paths to ride trikes/bikes or push strollers and benches, water fountains and porta-potties.
LIBRARY PARK
222 Park Street, Lakeport
Library park is open but the play structures are currently closed following the flooding earlier this year. The city is hoping to reopen the play structures by July 4, 2017. This park has lots of mature trees that provide wonderful shade on hot days. The young children's play area is fenced and gated providing peace of mind to parents. This park is right on the water and ducks are frequent visitors. You'll find plenty of tables or grass space for a picnic.
WESTSHORE POOL
250 Lange Street, Lakeport 
(Behind the schools)
The pool is large enough to accommodate oodles of swimmers and has a handicap lift for full inclusion.  The pool is open to the community on Wednesdays through Fridays from noon to 3:00pm and Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5:00pm. 
LAKESIDE COUNTY PARK
1985 Park Dr., Lakeport
Lakeside County Park is located on the water midway between the business districts of Lakeport and Kelseyville. There are several softball fields and a boat launch ramp as well as this very shady playground with picnic tables and grills. The shade is the biggest draw to this park on those hot summer days.
CLEARLAKE OAKS PARKS
NYLANDER COUNTY PARK
12586 Acorn Sreet, CLO
One word: Gorgeous! The play structure is friendly for the younger children, there is a winding path that is perfect for tricycle or strider bikes, the manicured lawn begs to be played on and the picnic spots are shaded and so inviting. Definitely recommend you check this one out.
LOWER LAKE PARKS
RUSSELL RUSTICI COUNTY PARK
16375 Second Street, Lower Lake
This is a true community gathering place with plenty of room for large groups and play dates. The entire park is fenced in and it has all of the amenities for a great party spot.
MIDDLETOWN PARKS AND POOLS
MIDDLETOWN COUNTY PARK AND POOL
20962 Big Canyon Rd., Middletown
The park has a standard, unshaded play structure (ages 5-12), but the real draw here in the summer is THE POOL!  Children 12 and under can pick up free pool passes from Hardester's Market and the fee for visitors over age 12 is less than $5/person.  There is a diving board in the larger pool which is a huge hit with the older kids. The littlest children (and their parents) will appreciate the large kiddie pool where a toddler can play and splash freely in water that comes up to her shins.

UPPER LAKE PARKS
Upper Lake County Park
575 East Hwy 20
This park right on Hwy 20 has restrooms, playground equipment, picnic tables, grills, and a baseball field. The play structure is intended for children 5 and up, but there are baby swings. Be careful! The grassy field has been riddled with holes by some burrowing animal and is bumpy and uneven. Running is not advised.
NICE PARKS
KEELING COUNTY PARK
3000 Lakeshore Blvd., Nice
This hidden gem really showcases the beauty of Lake County. The play structure is for ages 5-12, but there are baby swings, a gorgeous manicured grassy area perfect for a blanket and a pile of good books, bathrooms, shaded picnic tables, a public pier, grills, and benches. Love this one!
HINMAN COUNTY PARK
3494 East Hwy 20, Nice
There is no play structure at this park, but the huge gazebo is a great shady place for little ones to dance, sing, read, or pretend. The lawn is in great shape and perfect for playing with balls or water balloons and there are picnic tables and benches. This one is on the main drag (Hwy 20) and tough to miss. We didn't see restrooms, but there is a gas station next door.
LUCERNE PARKS
ALPINE PARK
5985 East Hwy 20
Another truly lovely park right on the water with easy access if you want to help your little one explore and splash. Bathrooms, water fountains, lots of shady picnic tables and the standard age 5-12 play structure with baby swings. The grass is in great shape, but a little squishy because of it's proximity to the lake. The gazebo at the end of the pier has several very large picnic tables, perfect for big group play date and picnic.
LUCERNE HARBOR PARK
6225 East Hwy 20
This park is rather sparse and shade is hard to come by, but it is right across the street from Foster's Freeze and Fresh & Bangin Eatery and just down the way from Alpine Park so you might want to check it out. 
CLEARLAKE PARKS
AUSTIN PARK
14077 Lakeshore Dr, Clearlake
The view cannot be beat! This park has many amenities: bathrooms, picnic tables play structures for all ages, grills and beach access. This park is situated between a busy street and the lake, so constant adult supervision is a must.
REDBUD PARK
14655 Lakeshore Dr, Clearlake
There is no play structure here, but there are picnic tables and a big grassy area. The real draw here is the boat ramp. If your little one loves boats, this is a great place to come and enjoy watching all sorts of watercraft come and go while you talk about things that float and sink.
COBB POOL
PINE GROVE POOLS
15960 Bottle Rock Rd, Cobb
Pine Grove is a privately owned venue with two swimming pools that are open to the public. One pool is filled with natural spring water and the other is a traditional chlorinated spring-fed pool with a slide, diving board and two connected kiddie pools.  Children age 3 and under swim for free! The entry fee for children over age 3 is $6 and adults pay $8 for day use. Pine Grove is surrounded by evergreens and it is typically 10 degrees cooler up on Cobb, making this a relaxing mountain getaway that is still so close to home!
KELSEYVILLE PARKS
KELSEYVILLE COUNTY PARK
5270 State Street
This park is right in the heart of the quaint small town of Kelseyville, in walking distance to multiple pizza parlors, a coffee shop and an ice cream shop. It has a semi-shaded play structure and swings and adjoins the basketball court and new skatepark. There are covered picnic tables to enjoy as well.
