Irby Park

Come on out to volunteer

Saturdays, 9 a.m. to Noon!

Irby Park’s 2023 transformation has been phenomenal! Here’s how this HB neighborhood park is shaping up as of July, thanks to volunteers.  Grab your gardening gloves and join us on Saturdays, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., as we plant and tend to water-wise trees and flowering shrubs.

Neighborhood volunteers are working to create a lush yet drought-tolerant landscape brimming with Southern California native trees, wildflowers, logs and boulders. Irby Park restoration will provide wildlife habitat, increase property values, and beautify the park for all to enjoy.

Please support our efforts by donating to the Huntington Beach Tree Society and specifying Irby Park Restoration. Tax-deductible donations may be made by clicking on the “Donate” button below or sending a check to:
