Harriett M. Wieder Regional Park is operated under the auspices of Orange County Parks. It was named after Harriett M. Wieder, the first female elected in 1978 to the Orange County Board of Supervisors was conceived in the mid 1970s with the initial plan for park development completed in 1992. There is another park in Huntington Beach named Wieder Park. It is located on Lynn Street in Huntington Harbour.

In 2001 conceptual design of the first phase of development of Harriett M. Wieder Regional Park began as a result of collaborative efforts by Supervisor James Silva, District II, and Huntington Beach City officials to obtain city and regulatory agency permits. Phase 1A of Harriett M. Wieder Park is a four-acre site of a 106-acre regional park. Harriett M. Wieder Regional Park Phase 1 officially opened to the public April 6, 2004.  Huntington Beach Wieder Park

Wieder Park includes a 24-car parking lot, open turf area for picnicking, decomposed granite pathways, toddler and youth playground equipment, a picnic area, native plants, trails, and a scenic viewpoint. When the regional park is completed it will provide an important recreational trail link between Huntington Beach Central Park and Bolsa Chica State Beach. The park was designed to harmonize with the area's environment through the use of native plants and subdued and artistic materials for parking areas, walkways, benches and playgrounds.

Unique features include creative challenging play equipment called Galaxy that display attractive, contemporary abstract designs which encourage creative and thought-provoking play for children ages 6-12. Similar to Galaxy, the Elements tot lot area for 2-5 year-olds feature units that promote climbing, sliding, swinging, spinning and tottering fun. Wieder Park has more than 2,200 lineal feet of new trails (just under a ' mile in the four plus acre area) and an additional 520 feet of soft riding trail spanning the street front portion of the park. The site is further enhanced by 1,700 native plants. Finally its 1,300-foot wire fence protects children from street traffic and serves as a boundary separating adjacent private property.

What also sets Wieder Park apart from others is its make-up of recycled materials such as car bumper stops, trash can hangers, old tires that encompass 9,000 plus square feet of play area rubberized surfacing, and crushed miscellaneous base parking lot surfacing. In addition, the park was graded to recycle water run-off. Rain and irrigation water is captured on-site to replenish groundwater using a bio-swale system that collects site nuisance water.

The County currently owns about 33 acres for park land and expects one day to gain access to the entire 106-acre site that is partially tied up in private development deals and long-term oil leases.
