Tucked in a small valley in southwest Escondido, Felicita County Park is one of San Diego's most diverse gathering places. Year-round spring fed creeks separate the park into a patchwork of natural and developed areas. Nestled under a shroud of ancient oak trees are trails, playgrounds and picnic areas perfect for a birthday party or corporate event.

The park also features a newly renovated wedding ceremony space and a covered pavilion perfect for receptions.

Felicita County Park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its rich Native American and pioneer history. Ranger-led school and interpretive hikes are available by reservation.
