Current Volunteer Opportunities
These 4.1 acres include four fully restored and furnished historic buildings that span the early history of the Saddleback Valley and El Toro area from the Mexican Rancho era, to the founding of the town of El Toro, through the citrus farming days of the early twentieth century.
Guided tours through the buildings are provided for the public Wednesday through Sunday. The tours offer an interpretation of Saddleback area history through the artifacts, events and people associated with each building. Landscaping of the park is in keeping with the historic nature of the buildings. The grounds are also available for weddings and special events, by appointment. Park staff and associated community interest groups offer special events each year including the annual Victorian Christmas held on the first Saturday of December.
There are no fees for entrance or public tours of Heritage Hill Historical Park for groups of seven or less. Groups of eight or more must make advance public tour reservations and the fee is $2 per person. Please contact park staff a minimum of three weeks in advance of your requested tour date. Voluntary donations are accepted and aid the park in historical program presentations. The Amigos de la Colinas volunteer docent group assists the park staff by conducting tours and special programs.
