Mission Statement

The purpose of Heritage park is to promote and enhance an appreciation for the origins and development of the city of Corona, including an appreciation of its early industries, with special emphasis on citrus. This will be accomplished by providing educational and recreational opportunities in a park-like setting, surrounded by early twentieth century buildings, formal landscaping, and a small working lemon grove.


Heritage Park will be open to all institutions and individuals wanting to learn more about Corona's citrus heritage. Plans include multi-use commercial and recreational operations that will produce a "living" museum. This will be a park where people can visit, explore, dine, shop or take part in recreational and educational activities while surrounded by Corona's history.
