An Update on the Restoration of the Cottages and the Park
Crystal Cove State Park is one of Orange County’s most iconic destinations, giving visitors a glimpse into the past of simpler times along the California Coast. When Crystal Cove was about to be turned into a luxury resort in 1999, the Alliance to Rescue Crystal Cove was established, to safeguard this historical legacy as a state park. In 2003, the Crystal Cove Conservancy, as it became known, began renovation of the 46 original beach cottages and the entire Historic District was closed to the public. Since then, the Conservancy has completed two phases of restoration to the park—representing an investment of $23.3 million—that has provided access to many areas of the beachfront, renovated 29 of the cottages and restored many sections of the park back to its native habitat.
The Heritage Legacy Project for California represents the final phase of restoration needed to complete this vision for Crystal Cove State Park, including building the infrastructure to restore the remaining 17 historic cottages, supporting new and expanded educational programs, restoring full access to the public beach and state park and protecting the natural environment.
Join us for a behind-the-scenes look at the Heritage Legacy Project presented by Laura Davick, Founder and Vice President, Crystal Cove Conservancy.
