Lake Park
12th   Street and Main Street
Huntington Beach, CA 92648

Lake Park in downtown Huntington Beach is a trip back in time to a wooden park bench where you sit a while, enjoying the powder-blue sky, shaded green lawns and the sounds of children at play. Surrounded by unique homes offset from old-fashioned Main Street, the experience is both timeless and priceless.

On most days you'll see kids romping on the playground equipment or riding their little bikes along the paths of this scenic eight acre park that's surrounded by Main, 11th, 12th and Lake Streets, six blocks from the beach and nine blocks from the Huntington Beach Pier.

Lake Park is one of Huntington Beach's favorite locations for event planning. It features the largest state-of-the-art outdoor cooking facilities adjacent to a club house that includes a kitchen and room with a piano. Huntington Beach High School graduates often hold reunions at Lake Park, brides and grooms get married there, Boy Scouts hold meetings and each year on July 4, the Kiwanis hold a pancake breakfast fund-raiser before the famous parade marches down Main Street. Restroom facilities are provided at the clubhouse for event rentals. If you think a city of 200,000 residents seems too large, Lake Park provides that intimate space to make you feel at home and welcome.

The park includes a large meeting and event area with curbside parking on Lake Street. That's where the clubhouse, large cement picnic patio with picnic tables, stainless cook tops on huge brick ovens and horseshoe pits are located. The clubhouse and large picnic area are available for rent through the City of Huntington Beach Community Services department. Call: (714) 536-5486.

Midway in the park with curbside parking on 12th Street are the playgrounds with slides, swings and ladders in a large sand area. There are several wooden park benches for parents to sit and watch their children play, plus scattered picnic tables under shady groves for small gatherings. The individual tables are available on a first come first serve basis.
