This half-acre community park, owned and maintained by the Fallbrook Village Association, is located on South Mission Road. Formerly called Beech Street Park it was renamed in honor of local resident and activist Jackie Heyneman in a ceremony on May 5, 2012. Jackie Heyneman has been a long-time volunteer with the Fallbrook Land Conservancy and the Save Our Forest Committee, working to plant new trees as well as saving many of the older trees in Fallbrook.
This is a lovely shaded park which includes a large grassy area and benches along the paved walking path which surrounds it. It was originally dedicated to the people of Fallbrook on June 6, 1996.

It's very easy to miss this little park when driving past on South Mission Road as only the treetops are visible. It's worth stopping and checking out and would be a lovely, quiet spot for a picnic.
