The Park of La Habra Heights located at:
1885 Hacienda Rd, La Habra Heights, CA 90631
Near East Rd is the home to the
La Habra Heights Avocado Festival.
Each year in mid-May the city of La Habra Heights celebrates the Hass avocado at its Annual La Habra Heights Avocado Festival – an avocado-focused, agricultural and community festival held in mid-May every year. All commercial, fruit-bearing Hass avocado trees have been grown from grafted seedlings propagated from a single tree which was grown from a seed bought by Rudolph Hass in 1926 from A. R. Rideout of Whittier, California. In 1926, at his 1.5-acre grove at 430 West Road, La Habra Heights, California, Hass planted three seeds he had bought from Rideout, which yielded one strong seedling. When the tree began bearing odd, bumpy fruit, his children liked the taste. Hass patented the tree in 1935 (the first US patent on a tree). The mother tree stood for many years in front of a residence in La Habra Heights. The tree died when it was 76 years old and was cut down on September 11, 2002.

The Park is a great place to hold an outdoor event. I have been involved in many local events, such as the Avocado Festival.
