Overlook Park

Fall and love in the air – Team Overlook finished rehab-ing and mulching the trail area off Overlook Drive at the end of Oct. 2020. The mulch looks and smells great, retains moisture for the trees and plants, and discourages weeks from growing.

Overlook Park, located near Seapoint and Garfield in Huntington Beach, is one of city’s newest parks, first planned and planted about 20 years ago. Using the Shipley to Shore Nature Trails that parallels paved Overlook Drive, one can view the wetlands, oil fields and Pacific Ocean.

Within the approximately five-acre park, HB Tree Society volunteers work to remove invasive non-native weeds, and have replaced them with a red bud tree, white, silver and coastal sages, monkey flowers in yellow orange and red, alliums, bladderpod, coastal oak, blue oak, toyon, sugar bush, lemonade berry and baja spurge. More native plants are added every week.

There’s lot of work yet to be done! Individuals interested in volunteering at Overlook Park are welcome! Learn more by clicking here.
