Best Least-Hyped Public Attraction (2013)

Mile Square Park

In a county with Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, famous Pacific Ocean beaches and harbors, acclaimed malls, and the Honda Center, there's a quiet jewel called Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley. This tree-loaded property offers tennis courts, a golf course, picnic spots, basketball courts, softball fields and tiny lakes, all made more pleasant when you realize vast portions surrounding it are vegetation-free eyesores. It's a lovely place for a jog or a romantic walk. Given this is OC, greedy real-estate developers are continually plotting ways to bulldoze the park, pour concrete and build a private, gated housing community.
