Reata Park in San Juan Capistrano features native gardens and an arboretum with mighty oaks and shady sycamores. It’s nice to have some protected open space in the middle of all the development around Ortega Highway and Antonio Parkway.
The thoughtful design of the park is evident as tree-lined walkways, scenic event spaces, and native plant landscaping flow seamlessly through the area. The native plant garden is one of the largest and most extensive in California and requires minimal water and maintenance. To preserve a slice of the city’s history, the nearly 100-year-old structure located on the property has been carefully restored and now serves as the park’s new Welcome Center. Reata Park is a perfect destination for a stroll or picnic, as well as for large festival events like Field Trip Fest.
We want to thank you for joining us at Field Trip Fest for Docent Brewing's 6th Anniversary Celebration. We wanted to make it bigger and better for all our guest this year so we added 20 more breweries and a second stage of music. We also took over more of the park to widen the event space to make it flow better to get to your favorite brewery or vendor. This is a rain or shine event so see you soon!
