The Magical Bridge Playground in Redwood City is open to the public 7 days a week from 9:00 am - Sunset.

Magical Bridge Playground in Redwood City's Red Morton Park is built on the premise of kindness. Please be kind and respectful to city staff, volunteers aka Kindness Ambassadors, and all who visit our magical space.

Visit Redwood City Park's FAQs for more explanation.

  • All gates will open at 9:00 a.m. Please keep gates closed at all times. (with exception of the West Park Entrance- due to the park improvment project) 
  • Masks are no longer required but are encouraged.
  • We recommend washing your hands before entering.
  • Please, no food or drink (other than water) to help keep your playground clean and safe for all abilities. Our play surfaces are one of the main staples of our accessibility. Not only are messes extremely difficult to clean, but they are sometimes impossible to remove, and the only remedy is expensive turf replacement and park closures. This is the same reason we do not allow wheels.
  • We now allow cardboard! Please BYO cardboard to slide on, but please take it home with you when you leave.
  • Please wear shoes for your safety.
  • NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED except for service dogs with a vest and tags.
  • NO WHEELS are allowed in any of the play zones, except for wheelchairs. Please park your strollers or ride-on toys in the designated area. Bikes can be locked to the bike racks outside the gate.
  • DAY CARE OR CAMP FIELD TRIPS MUST CONTACT OUR DEPARTMENT FOR APPROVAL PRIOR TO VISITING to ensure an enjoyable experience for all. We have many of our own camp programs using the playground as well and we'd like to make sure we have a safe crowd balance for the general public recreation@redwoodcity.org
  • You may notice our Kindness Ambassador volunteers in the playground from time to time. They help ensure that Magical Bridge Playground is as fun, welcoming, and inclusive as it can be. Want to join the team? Information below! Click here!

Thank you in advance for your attention to these protocols which are in place to protect the safety of the whole community. Your actions affect the health and safety of everyone and will help to keep our playground open and magical.

* Please park your vehicle in the Valota Road parking lot (located next to the Armory and main entrance of Magical Bridge Playground). Address: 939 Valota Road, Redwood City, CA 94061.

Become A Kindness Ambassador At The Magical Bridge Playground In Redwood City

Thanks to an amazing partnership with the Redwood City Parks and Arts Foundation, community volunteers will help keep the playground safe and magical for all who visit. As a Kindness Ambassador, your goal is to create a fun and inclusive space where visitors of all ages and abilities feel welcome.

At this time, they are only accepting applications for Kindness Ambassadors ages 18 and up. You must be able to dedicate a minimum of 4 hours a month for at least 6 months (shifts are 2 hours long). Kindness Ambassadors will help safely open the playground and help lead family-friendly events and activities, once we are safely able to do so.
