A short walk leads to a school house depicting early turn of the century education with appropriate furnishings. There are several events held at the park during the year.... More

This park has several buildings, home and a church that were relocated from various locations in the area to thus park. The docents and park put on several programs throughout the year including June Halloween, thanksgiving and Christmas. Have been in the area for over 30 years and always a treat to drop in. Great for young families and grandkids!!!

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!
