ISLAND BEAR PLAY
About the image above:
The bear is a symbol of California. It is major element of the California state flag, and though a wild bear hasn't been spotted in Huntington Beach for over 100 year (best guess), there's a playground with a bear.
Huntington Harbour's Gilbert Island includes a unique spot, a grassy lawn with a bench to sit on, and a place for kids to romp and climb on a bear. You'll find this hidden gem off Coast Highway near Peter's Landing.
