Waller Park is the Kid's World of the Santa Maria/Orcutt area. It is close to the Santa Maria Discovery Museum if you want to make a day of it. The park itself is very spacious with a pond with lots of different kinds of birds, volleyball court, softball fields, reservable group areas and 2 large play structures. The 2-5 play structure has has 4 slides, a bridge, a tunnel, and 2 climbing areas. The 5-12 play structure has 7 climbing areas including a climbing wall and a large variety of others and 4 slides (twisty, double and more). There are regular swings, 1 toddler swing, and a tire swing as well as a spring riding toy and a car structure.
The park has a large variety of things to do.
The park has lots of parking.
This would be an excellent park for climbers.
The park was busy with a lot of kids there on the vacation day we were there.
The bathrooms were a distance from the play area. There is no way to keep an eye on one while taking another to the bathroom.
The large structure is high, so probably not for every mom and kid.
There is not a lot of shade on hot days and the area itself can be windy.
