Charles Wilson Park in Torrance is home to the first universally-accessible tree house in a public space in California. Dedicated in 2006, the 2,500-square-foot wooden structure is designed to give children and adults of all ages and physical abilities an awe-inspiring experience — and a bird’s eye view. It offers winding paths, whimsical roof lines and lots of quiet corners for relaxing. It also offers views of the expansive public park, which houses basketball courts, a baseball diamond, a running track, a roller-hockey rink, duck pond, and miniature railroad & train.
The Charles Wilson Park Community Treehouse is the first of its kind in California and was made possible by a generous donation from the Annenberg Foundation. The City of Torrance was chosen because of its community pride in its programs, schools, resources and parks; its diversity; its support for those who are physically challenged; and its public safety record.
The Charles Wilson Park Community Treehouse is open daily from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM.
