Unable to visit and see this attraction (?) because access was blocked by locked gates. I took one picture of a cross which site on a small hill adjacent to the road. We were disappointed to miss it. Recommend you skip the attempted to find it and visit.

There are just a bunch of buildings in a circle. Met the caretaker and had a nice chat with him but really not worth the effort

We attended an event in support of a local Oceanside candidate on a Sunday. The live music was provided by Cowboy Jack Johnson (a local and very excellent Hank Williams/Johnny Cash music performer,) they also had an "ice-cream social" ongoing at Heritage Park on that Sunday and the ice cream was great! A "must experience" location in Oceanside, CA!

I've live in Oceanside for years and have driven by the "Heritage Park Open Sunday 1-4" sign hundreds of times. So we got ourselves together and went over. Ok -- the park gate was unlocked and there are buildings but they were locked with no schedule posted of when they might be open. The buildings look interesting as they are... More

This whole park can be rented for functions. Check out the blacksmith building, the old jail and the central gazebo, perfect for weddings and family reunions.

This little hidden gem of a place in Oceanside was built in 1976 as a tribute to the bicentennial of America, and has buildings (homes, schoolhouse, blacksmith shop, old jail, printing office, etc) around a central gazebo and beautiful lawn. On a former visit, the buildings were open and docents gave tours and brought the history to life. Unfortunately, for... More

I found this park accidentally while looking for Mission San Luis Rey. It is a quaint place set up to look like it's from the late 1800s. They had a little store for ice cream, a gazebo, a little school, and the birds were singing beautifully. Can't wait to go back to enjoy the history in a nature setting!
