This little gem is tucked away near a shopping center. If you didn't know it was there you would miss it. I attended a wedding there and it was just beautiful. It is very secluded and feels so different once inside you forget that there is a shopping center right outside but because there is there is ample parking and... More

When you enter its like stepping back in time. This is a well maintained park atmosphere that includes many historical buildings and farming equipment. Each building or piece has a place card that gives relevant information and social application. This park incorporates different levels and offers different views . I was truly surprised such a gem existed in my neighborhood... More

Everyone who lives in our local Saddleback Valley should go to Heritage Hill Historic Park at least once. All third-grade teachers should bring their classes on a field trip for their county curriculum. The park has wonderful celebrations in May, October and December. Kids and parents alike will have a blast!

This park is the best kept secret in south Orange County. We had a city docent give us a personal tour of the one room school house and original church right off Serrano and Trabucco Road in Lake Forest . The cost. FREE.

Our son was recently married in the 1800s church on the property. The reception was held "concert in the park" style near another historic building. Beautiful and unique location for a smaller size wedding.

A group of friends and I visited the Heritage Hill Historic Park on a beautiful Southern California Winter Day. The park is well maintained and the buildings are historically representative. We took a tour guided by one of the docents. It was very informative and conducted at a relaxed pace. Lots of facts about the ancestral family and Orange County... More

I took my 8 year old on a docent tour here this past summer. It was very interesting for us to see how people lived when they first arrived to the area. The docent was very informative. We got to see a school house, church, house and much more. We really loved our visit and I loved that it snuck... More
