"Charming Neighborhood Feel"

Heliotrope Avenue is a quiet, tree-lined lane in northern Santa Ana. The custom-built homes on the street date from a variety of periods, but most were built prior to 1980. Much of Heliotrope Avenue enjoys a canopy of large sheltering trees. One part of the street is lined with tall palm trees, creating an iconic Southern California ambiance.

Heliotrope is part of the Floral Park Neighborhood Association, a voluntary non-profit group that organizes community projects and events. The association fosters a strong sense of community. Heliotrope is set amidst a neighborhood of historic older homes, many of which could be classified as mansions. The northern part of Heliotrope Avenue is near Jack Fisher Park. This small neighborhood park is one of the oldest in Santa Ana. It features a playground, picnic area and a log cabin that can be rented for events. The southern part of Heliotrop ends at 17th Street, a busy commercial thoroughfare.

One of the negative aspects of Heliotrope Avenue is that it is located within half a mile of the busy 5 freeway, though this may be seen as a plus by some commuters. On the positive side, the Bowers Museum, Discovery Science Center and Westfield MainPlace shopping center are also nearby.
