Where is it?

At The Park in La Habra Heights (on Hacienda Blvd.)

which offers a wonderful venue for the event – acres of grass, trees, shade, sun, real restrooms (not porta-potties!) and lots of free parking. Please note that Yahoo & Google have no clue as to where this is. This location shows the correct place. It is the same place the picnic is always held. Go south on Hacienda from the 60 fwy or north from Whittier Blvd. Click on the marker for directions.

This year there’s a detour due to road closure. If you normally come to the picnic from the North (the Pomona [60] Freeway or Colima Rd.), Hacienda Blvd is closed between Glenmark Drive and Canada Sombre Road. If this is how you drive to the picnic, you need to access the Park from the South. One way to get to the Park from the 60 is to exit at Fullerton Road, continue on Fullerton when it changes to Harbor, make a right on Whittier, then right again on Hacienda Blvd. Or get off the 60 at Hacienda, turn right on Colima Rd, make a left on Whittier Blvd and a left on Hacienda Blvd.

Here are just a few of the great things planned for this year's picnic!
