Not much here to see, but good for Malibu.

This is sometimes referred to by locals as "weed park", not the smoking kind but natural fauna... read more

This is not an "outing" destination, but it is a good place to decompress in the middle of the day. Ducks, bugs and flowers - nature.

We visited legacy park around mid day and was pretty disappointed. We ran into another couple of people who basically reiterated our thoughts 'is this it? Weren't you expecting more' which gave us a bit of a laugh. Nothing much to look at, the tide...More

This is sometimes referred to by locals as "weed park", not the smoking kind but natural fauna kind. The city of Malibu acquired this land some time ago to prevent over development. Good. But it was meant to be a natural state example rather than...More

We visited this on our stop at Malibu... so pleased we did. We loved the mosaic animal sculptures and reading the information about the native plants. We also enjoyed reading the information boards about the history of Malibu.

One of the more (and, in my view, unfairly) maligned spots in Malibu. The mosaic animals are fun to look at. Best of all, it's a great place to walk off dinner after dining at any of the nearby restaurants.

this is the original drought proof park. legacy park was ahead of the curve when they only planted native drought resistant plants. hardly a flower filled garden, but the community is thankful to have a nice open space instead of more $800 t shirt shops.

This area in Central Malibu was purchased to prevent it from becoming a shopping mall and was instead developed into an area of local fauna and hiking paths. Good place for walking with strollers and there is easy parking along the North side, opposite the...More
