1. Wilson Park
2200 Crenshaw Blvd, Torrance, CA 90501
Wilson Park is one of the best parks in torrance to work out. There are lots of people there, so it's perfect if you want to be around others while you're working out. The park has a great atmosphere and is always buzzing with energy. There are also plenty of trees and grassy areas to relax in after your workout.
First, it's centrally located in Torrance, so it's easy to get to no matter where you're coming from.
Second, the park has plenty of open space for running, sprinting, and other cardio activities.
And third, there are also a few pieces of workout equipment scattered around, so you can do some strength training as well. Wilson Park is a great all-around park for getting your workout in.
Wilson Park is also home to the Torrance Farmer's Market, so you can grab some healthy food to refuel after your workout. The market is open every Saturday morning.
2. Torrance Park
2001 Santa Fe Ave, Torrance, CA 90501
Torrance Park is located in Central Torrance, nearby the famous Wilson Park. This 10 acre park is a little bit smaller than Wilson, but it's still a great place to workout. There are plenty of trees and benches for resting, and there's also a playground for the kids.
The park is perfect for a quick HIIT or CrossFit workout because there are a few pieces of workout equipment scattered around.
Torrance Park is perfectly flat, so it's great for doing standard workouts that do not need varied terrain. The park has plenty of benches and trees if you need to take a break, and there's also a playground for the kids.
3. Entradero Park
5500 Towers St, Torrance, CA 90503
Entradero Park is a great park for a longer workout. It has a small lake that's perfect for a peaceful walk or jog, and there's also a little league park if you need some space to throw around the ball (and it's a fun vibe during season!)
The best thing about Entradero Park, though, is the 1km trail that goes around the entire park. This trail is perfect for running or walking, and it's really well maintained. There are also a few benches along the way if you need to take a break.
The views from the trail (see photo for example) remind me of some of the views I got to see when I dropped into this gym in Overland Park, KS.
It's tucked away behind a neighborhood, so it's not as well known as some of the other parks in town. But that also means it's less crowded, which is great if you want to focus on your workout.
4. Lago Seco Park
3920 W 235th St, Torrance, CA 90505
Lago Seco Park is a great place for a workout if you're looking for something a little more challenging. The park has a great variety of activities, including baseball fields, basketball courts, and a playground.
It's also home to some community gardens, which is perfect if you're looking for some fresh fruits and vegetables after your workout.
On the weekends you'll likely see everything ranging from hip-hop dance cardio fitness to tae-chi groups participating in group activities at this park. You might even see me training some basketball teams there!
Bonus: Torrance Beach
Vía Riviera, Torrance, CA 90277
when people think of beaches in Los Angeles, the usual suspects come to mind: Venice Beach, Santa Monica, maybe even Laguna or Long Beach. However, Torrance is the home to one of the best kept secrets in local beaches: Torrance Beach!
This beach is perfect for a workout because it has a long, flat stretch of sand that's perfect for running or walking.
There are also plenty of public benches and picnic tables if you need to take a break. And the best part is that it's not as crowded as some of the other beaches in Los Angeles.
Bring your rollerblades, long board, or bike too because the concrete path that runs along the beach is perfect for skating or biking. Just be careful of the pedestrians!
If running is your thing, the strand run that starts at Torrance beach can literally go as far as Venice beach - over 20 miles away!
