Art Walk -(brochure)

The one mile Art Walk was established in 2018 to encourage community members to discover several art pieces within walking distance of the Sculpture Garden as well as promote good health through walking.

The Art Walk begins at Heritage Park, located at 12100 Mora Dr., and winds through the Sculpture Garden then over the pedestrian bridge to the Heritage Springs Business Park to view more art pieces that represent the history of Santa Fe Springs. Art Walk maps, available at the Heritage Park office, include information about the historic buildings, museum exhibits, murals, fountains and sculptures along the Art Walk. Participants may choose to do a self-guided walk or request a docent-led art walk.
