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

We went for the Christmas celebration but learned so much about the history of the area. This group of historical buildings are very interesting and beautiful. Great for family outings.

We have visited Heritage Hill Historic Park on numerous occasions and always find it interesting. We always go when the Docent will take a group out, and the information is voluminous. The historic buildings are well maintained and it is especially nice to walk around the park on a sunny day

This park, behind the Ralphs, and above the Serrano Creek Ranch Equestrian Center, houses several historic El Toro properties form early in the 20th century, and gives a great feel for what ranch life was once like in Orange County.

You can visit this small park/historic site anytime but I recommended going Wednesday-Sunday at 11 or 2.At those times they have a guide that gives a tour. Not only do you get lots of interesting historical information; you also get better access to the buildings. Without a guide there are only certain things can look at the rest is locked.

This is a collection of the original Serano's family adobe ,the original El-Toro one room school and few other structure from the early days of pre commercialized Orange County. Ideal for a Sunday morning with small kids.

This is a very small park. I would say if you are stopping in Lake Forest, you can certainly go take a look. I doubt it will be a highlight of your day. As it is in the back of a strip mall, it is easy access but not too enthralling. You can devote an hour at most. Let's face... More

The historic site shows what Orange County looked like in the early 1900's. There are a few structures and informative guides. When finished, suggest having breakfast or lunch at Bagels and Brew just in front of the entrance to this historic site.
