About the Park


Located in the central part of the city, the 10.08-acre Portola Park is located north of W. Electric Avenue and west of S. Euclid Street. It was developed in 1975. Portola Park is a popular park due to its many facilities. It includes the Children's Museum at La Habra that attracts many visitors from throughout Southern California, as well as a dinosaur garden created by the Museum. The Museum is also used as a teaching facility by teachers from many areas. The park was also the site of an old railroad station which has been rehabilitated to house the Children's Museum. The museum has recently expanded and includes a new building that extends the old railroad station and has kept its architectural integrity. The La Habra Tennis Center is adjacent to the park's parking lot, as also is the Depot Theater.
