  • My daughter and I love to walk along the trails. There are times we have seen a number of rabbits that she loves. The beach is very nice, clean and not crowded. It's truly a lovely place and kid friendly.
  • Heisler Park is a great place in Laguna Beach a lot of hiking running and you can go down a bunch of stairs to the beach. beautiful views of the gorgeous sea below. This is a very cool place to take awesome pictures
  • Laguna Beach's famous cliff-side sculpture park now hosts Sukhdev Dail's lovely "Sea Breeze", installed in 2015 and replacing "Watch Your Toes" (2011) by Jon Seeman.
  • Heisler Park is so very beautiful; every part of it. Winding paths takes you through highly manicured gardens as you view the Pacific Ocean 50 to 75 feet below. The park is flowered beautifully, scent of jasmine in the air, palm trees, cactus, green grass, and art sculptures make every moment a pleasure. The sunsets are great, the ocean is beautiful, the cliffs are spectacular; every inch of this park is a treat, a lot more positives than this, a lot more. Also, the Las Brisas Restaurant is a must; it is set in clifftop gardens on the edge of Heisler Park.
  • I didn't know this place existed. Honestly...I thought Laguna was Main Beach and that was it. The park is well-kept, uncrowded, and has great views.
