Things to Do

Old Poway Park

Take a trip back in time and see what California was like during the early 20th century at Old Poway Park. This attraction is only open on the weekends so keep that in mind, but the park itself is open all week. Take a walk on the pathways and take some time to enjoy a picnic in the park. Getting around the park is easy thanks to the Poway Midland Railroad cable car and speeder. You can take it directly to the Poway Heritage Museum and tour the Nelson House. Every Saturday morning, a farmer’s market sells goods at the park as well. 14134 Midland Rd, Poway, CA 92064

Let loose, and catch some air at Get Air Trampoline Park. This facility is sure to be one your team remembers during your trip to Poway to play at Sportsplex USA Poway. Jump around on the massive open trampoline section, practice flips, and see how high you can get. Ricochet off a trampoline into a cushiony foam pit, climb a suspended rope ladder, or attempt to balance on the slackline. Don’t worry if you fall off the slackline or ladder because you’ll land right into Get Air’s foam pit.

For those who are seeking a little more intensity in their trampoline activities, you will be happy to know that Get Air offers trampoline dodgeball and a slam dunk area where you can dunk basketballs into hoops with the help of, you guessed it, trampolines.
