Oak Canyon Nature Center

Oak Canyon Nature Center is a 58-acre natural park nestled in the Anaheim Hills. It serves as a sanctuary for local wildlife and a haven for nature enthusiasts. Since its inception in the 1970s, it has become a cherished part of the community, offering a tranquil escape from the urban sprawl of Orange County.

The center boasts a network of hiking trails that meander through oak woodland, riparian habitats, and coastal sage scrub, offering visitors a glimpse into Southern California’s diverse ecosystems. The year-round stream, home to native species, adds a soothing soundtrack to the serene walks. The John J. Collier Interpretive Center, a small museum within the park, provides educational insights into the area’s natural history and wildlife. The center also hosts various programs and events throughout the year, including popular night hikes and the annual Spring Fling, drawing nature lovers of all ages.
