You and your family are invited to help us protect Crystal Cove State Park’s ecosystems. Join us on the second Saturday of each month to volunteer on conservation projects in the Park. The event is free with prior registration. Please check our events page for dates!

Art in the Park Spring Celebration

The shimmering ocean and rolling hillsides of Crystal Cove State Park have long inspired artists to paint, write, photograph, compose, tell stories, dance, and sketch. Be it a watercolor, a dance, or a musical composition, artists from different genres continue to be inspired by the beauty of the park and the spectacular landscapes, breathtaking scenery, and abundant gifts from nature. Check our events page for information on our next event!
