Heritage Park

Heritage Park Activities

The Heritage County Park & Victorian Village are located at the corner of Juan and Harney Streets.

Explore a unique San Diego treasure of beautifully-preserved Victorian buildings nestled in historic Old Town San Diego at Heritage County Park.

This 7.8-acre park is dedicated to the preservation of San Diego's Victorian architecture. Expansion downtown after WWII threatened these structures with demolition on their original sites. Public and private funds paid for the acquisition, relocation, and restoration of these buildings.

Heritage Park is owned by the County of San Diego and managed by Pacific Hospitality Group (PHG), which also operates the Best Western Hacienda Hotel-Old Town.

Future plans for Heritage Park include restoration of current buildings and additional Victorian Homes to be used as historic Inn’s and Bed & Breakfasts.

Heritage Park is open daily from sunrise to sunset. For more information please call 619.291.9784.
