Even though Labor Day weekend signals the end of summer vacation for many, summer never really ends here in Southern California.

In fact, we still have several months left of sunshine and summer vibes left in the year. 

Some will choose to soak up the sun at local beaches, but fighting crowds and battling sandy toes is not for everyone.

When you’re in need of some fresh air and sunshine, consider spending the day at a local park, where you can bring lunch, yard games, and enjoy all that Southern California has to offer.

Here are 12 homes for sale that are near community parks, golf courses, and green spaces.
