Many artists flock to the park to draw inspiration or display their talent. Pets are welcome, and you'll see plenty of people walking their dogs.

  • This is a beautiful hidden beach. All of the shells and rocks are protected, so no collecting! Excellent tide pools to explore and plenty of beautiful sand on this little stretch of beach.  more »
  • This is a very nice park to watch the sunset and walk through the pathways and the luxurious vegetation.  more »
  • Love this park. Take a walk, have lunch at Las Brisas, and stop in at the Laguna Art Museum. Make sure you take a picture by the whale.  more »

  • Great for a short walk around the cove. Amazing views with rocks, gardens, and of course the ocean. We saw snorkelers and surfers! Art sculptures throughout. Climb on the rocks and take pictures or relax on the beach. Very scenic.
  • Heisler Park, on the Coast of Laguna Beach, is the definition of world-class Public Access. The trail system leading down to the boardwalk of Laguna Beach itself makes for pleasant light cardio with a lot of beautiful flora to be seen along the garden path. There are also a lot of interesting artistic flourishes, particularly the statues, that adorn Heisler's public paths. Be prepared to pay for parking and it can be extremely crowded at certain times of the year.
  • Absolutely beautiful. Lush, tropical landscape, Stunning ocean views! Dog friendly! Great for walking, picnics, bbq, lots if cool art work through out the park walking trails
  • Beautiful place to go with family, this is a marine reserve and they have employees watching the place and giving you info about everything (animals, plants...everything) you can relax take a sunbathing and the kids can play all around, they have showers and bathrooms. I completely recommend this place. :)
  • Beautiful Park. Very serene on weeknights. No noise or people. Just the ocean waves, the moon, and the stars.
