With its sprawling grounds, the park offers endless opportunities for exploration and discovery.

Kids of all ages will be captivated by Luther Burbank Park’s many options, ensuring they stay engaged and entertained throughout your visit. From a sand beach on one end to rocky beaches along the other end, to enchanting trails, open fields to towering trees, and even an absolutely “awesome” playground (as proclaimed by my own kids), the park has something to delight every member of your family.

And let’s not forget about the breathtaking sunsets at Luther Burbank Park! These golden moments paint the sky with hues that beautifully frame your family’s smiles and create a warm, magical ambiance. If your little ones have an early bedtime, don’t worry. The park’s layout allows us to schedule slightly earlier sessions, ensuring we capture your family’s photographs by filtering the sunlight.

Now, let’s talk about a couple of things to keep in mind when planning your visit to Luther Burbank Park.

Being a popular destination, the park can get quite crowded at times. However, with its vast expanse, we can usually find secluded spots for your photos, away from the bustling crowds. The only challenge you might encounter is parking, especially on weekends. This is true for many popular parks on warmer days. Consider selecting a weekday evening time for fewer crowds.

Additionally, it’s worth noting that Luther Burbank Park has an off-leash dog area, making it a magnet for dog owners. If you’re considering bringing your furry friend along for your family photoshoot, be sure they are comfortable in such an environment. It’s essential that your dog isn’t easily distracted and gets along well with other pups and their owners, allowing you to focus on creating precious memories without any unexpected interruptions. Should you wish to bring your dog we can always select another, more quiet, location option.
