Lantern Bay Park in Dana Point

Dana Point Harbor

Dana Point Harbor

If you love a park with a view, then bring the family to Lantern Bay Park in Dana Point.  The park over looks Dana Point Harbor and Doheny State Beach and has a something for everyone.



The park is located off PCH at Park Lantern and Dana Point Harbor Drive, look for the Laguna Cliffs Marriott sign and drive up the hill.


Lantern Bay Park features a large structure that sits on top of a cushy surface, so leave your sand toys at home.


There are three slides (large, medium and small) to accommodate a range of ages.


There is also a balance beam and plenty of room to draw your own hop-scotch if you bring your own sidewalk chalk.


There is plenty of shade to host a family gathering or party, several picnic tables, trash cans and BBQ’s.


In the mornings here you can find Tai Chi classes or yogi’s practicing on the large open grass space. But this space is also fit for a football or soccer game or even a friendly race down the slopes.


This county park has a restroom room and access to the famous Dana Point Stairs, but leave that to another day and just enjoy the view!
