Discover OC’s Natural Side

The Shipley Nature Center is a wonderful place to get to know Orange County’s “natural” side. Located in Huntington Beach Central Park, this 18-acre coastal wilderness and wildlife refuge is filled with lovely native foliage. The Shipley Nature Center also hosts docent-led walking tours, parent-child events, and much more.


There are eight habitats to explore, including the oak woodlands, the meadow habitat, the redwood habitat, coastal sage scrub habitat, blackbird pond, riparian woodland habitat, the Torrey pine grove, and the southern oak woodland habitat.
