Laguna Niguel Regional Park is a public park in Laguna Niguel, in southern Orange County, California. Its main feature is Laguna Niguel Lake (also known as Sulphur Creek Reservoir), located within the park's boundaries.
Laguna Niguel's 4th of July fireworks show is held at the park every year.
The park was established for public use in 1973. Since then, it has had several developments. In 1976, a lake concession building and boat dock were constructed by the county. In 1981, local S&S Construction Company donated an additional 20acre of land for county use. The donation included "Kite Hill". In June 1983, a gazebo was built on the top of the scenic turnaround overlooking the park. In October 1984, many new additions were constructed, including: new front park entrance sign, landscaping, planting California Sycamore trees, reforestation of approximately 2,000 trees throughout the entire park, bicycle trails, additional picnic shelters, two creek crossing pedestrian bridges, one restroom, five fishing access piers, one fish cleaning station, an amphitheater, two regulation sand volleyball courts, two regulation horseshoe pits, and a par course along the park's two-mile jogging trail.
The Sulphur Creek Reservoir, also known as Laguna Niguel Lake, is used for fishing and boating. The park has volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, tennis courts, bike trails, playgrounds, barbecue pits, and picnic shelters. It also has a hill known as "Kite Hill". Local high school cross country meets are occasionally held here.

  • It has a lake, and has tennis court, pick-ball place, can hike and ride bike, etc. It's most the local people go there, but for the tourists, it's a good place to ride bike or walking, play balls...  more »
  • Its a okay place to fish. It has easy access just park and walk less 50 yards to a bench and fish for Trout, Bass, Blue Gill, Catfish, and Crappy. The walk is flat and also easy all the way aground.....  more »
  • Good place to get away from the City feel. There's biking, walking fishing, restrooms a lookout point and water fountains. Groups can rent spaces and play volleyball etc. A good all-around nature place where you can feel safe.
  • What a great regional park! It even has hills for kids to roll down. OC Parks Summer Cinema Series is an annual free event. Tennis courts, a kids play area and a lake all make this a wonderful place for families.
