SIMPSON PARK in Hemet, CA

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Kivett Teeters CA BRE# 00693015

I just want to talk about a really cool hillside park here in HEMET, CA. called Simpson Park.  You start driving up the hill from Florida Ave. which is the "main drag" in this town.  You then ascend up the hill, oh, I'm gonna say about 2 miles, passing some very beautiful hillside homes, that, if you are familiar with the Hemet area, may not even know these homes are there.

You then come to a gate that posts hours of operation for Simpson Park. 

 

Don't be sitting up there in your car anywhere close to 5pm (winter) 7pm (summer), because the gate AUTOMAGICALLY locks for the night.

What you then see is a sign which always makes me chuckle just a bit, with my warped sense of humor. 

 

I'm not sure if the sign is warning you about children or snakes?  Warning Sign at Simpson Park

However, once you get to the top of the hill, there are wonderful picnic areas for day campers and picnickers, and a parking area at the top that overlooks the world.  It is just breathtaking.  A must see for anyone visiting in and/or around the Riverside County/Temecula Valley areas.

So, when you are visiting Southern California, check out Simpson Park in Hemet.  I have yet to see a rattlesnake, but I have seen children looking out over the rocks and hiking.

Nice website about Simpson Park. I love Simpson too!  What do you know about using it during the time it is closed, in cool weather.  Is there a penalty if someone walks inside the park?  Thanks for whatever you know, Vicki

Close Down Simpson Park!

 

It is a total outrage that this park is only open two months year due to so called fire danger.  The truth is we are paying city workers to live and enjoy the park without having to do any work! By closing the park 9- 10 months a year they have their own private oasis RENT FREE and WORK FREE.  I am in the process of getting the mandated signatures to have the park closed so that hard working citizens do not have to foot the bill for these so called city employees ( Freeloaders).
