"A Steep Ride to the Top of the World"

Park Avenue is a most unique street in the most unique town of Laguna Beach. Park begins in the central shopping area of Laguna, a few blocks from the coast, and climbs to an elevation of about 1,000 feet in less than 2 miles.

Park initially climbs up through streets of small beach cottages and passes by Laguna Beach High School (the school that was featured in MTV’s Laguna Beach reality show). Past the high school, Park Avenue takes a turn just past the high school and then really starts to climb as it makes its way to the area of town known as Top of the World. Side streets give way to steep canyon walls. Park takes a sharp climbing turn and again passes by houses, only this time they are large custom-built homes perched on the steep hillside leading down from the canyon. Stunning views of the ocean and town spread out below. Park Avenue ends at Alta Laguna Blvd at the Top of the World.

Park Avenue has become popular for skateboarders who travel down the street at breakneck speed. Motorists on Park are advised to look out for both skateboarders and the deer that sometimes wander onto the road from the wilderness area adjacent to the canyon.
