farquhar park

Farquhar Park is one of Huntington Beach's most popular parks for weddings. It's lovely shade trees and open spaces in an established area provide an atmosphere brides seek. In a word...romantic.

Farquhar Park
12th St., Crest Ave. and Main Street
Huntington Beach, California 92648

Farquhar Park, named for Huntington Beach pioneer, editor and publisher James S. Farquhar, is located on 12th Street, Crest Avenue and Main Street, directly across from Lake Park in beautiful, downtown Huntington Beach, California. It's not surprising to wander up to this three acre park in the heart of the city and find a couple snuggled up on a park bench holding hands and smiling happily. That's because Farquhar Park is one of the most romantic locations for weddings in Huntington Beach.  There's no ocean view, though the Pacific Ocean is just a few blocks away. What's special about the park is the smell and feeling that permeates the air. Tall, established trees provide an earthy fragrance that blends with the ocean air to create a special memory. While the park is filled with trees, there's a large open space perfect for ceremonies.

Farquhar Park has several wood benches and picnic tables and lots of trees and lush green lawns. The park is simple, scenic and a perfect spot to sit and eat your lunch or visit with a friend. To reserve it for a wedding, call Community Services at the City of Huntington Beach (714) 536-5486.  Parking around the park perimeter includes free curbside space as available.

The City of Huntington Beach (California) is the caretaker and steward of the Huntington Beach public park system. Two departments involved with Huntington Beach parks are the Community Services Department and Park Maintenance. Park Maintenance is responsible for maintaining approximately 70 parks and public facilities, totaling 598 acres, 169 playground apparatus and irrigation systems. 

Park Maintenance is also an integral component in special events in the City, closely working with Community Services to set up for events and activities that take place on or near park facilities. Community Services not only handles the rental of the park facilities but also operates programs for the public that include softball leagues, exercise classes, cooking, dancing and other types of interesting and fun things to do.
