Malibu, CA 90265
Facility Use Information: 310.317.1364

The Malibu Legacy Park Project is the centerpiece of the City’s commitment to improving ocean water quality and improving public health. A multi-benefit project for the environment and the community, Legacy Park addresses critical issues, including bacteria reduction in stormwater treatment, restoration / development of riparian habitats, and the development of an open space area for passive recreation and environmental education. Created with funding from the City, grants, and $2.5 million in private contributions from the Malibu community, the $35 million project transformed 15 acres in the heart of Malibu into a central park that is one of the most ambitious and innovative stormwater and urban runoff projects in California. The clean stormwater is then reused for irrigation of the park. The creation of Legacy Park also restored and developed important native coastal habitats, while creating open space for passive recreation and environmental education. It offers a living learning center, informational kiosks, an outdoor classroom, a cultural interpretive center, and numerous other features to provide information and education about flora and fauna along the Southern California coast.
