Patriotic Parks and Trails in Orange County

Everyday is the perfect time to bring your children to one of these patriotic parks or hike along a patriot trail in Orange County. Visiting these small parks or memorials is a great way to open discussions with your children about 911, Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Stay tuned as we will be adding more parks to this list throughout the year.


Veterans Memorial Park in Dana Point

This small memorial is located right by the Strands Beach parking lot in Dana Point. There is a plaque with all the names of the fallen members of our military who lived in Dana Point. I recommend bringing a small flag or some flowers to leave when visiting with your children.


Patriot Trail in San Juan Capistrano

This is a beautiful hike that offers families panoramic views of Orange County. At the end of the trail is a flag pole and a mailbox where families can leave letters or notes in remembrance for those who have lost their lives for our freedom.


9/11 Monument
375 Cliff Drive
Laguna Beach, CA 92651

Located at the top of Heisler Park is a memorial made out of two beams from the World Trade Center.
