Farquhar Park is named after one of Huntington Beach’s well-remembered citizens James S. Farquhar. Farquhar was the publisher for Huntington Beach news for 43 years as well as an outstanding citizen who had taken part in business, political, social, church and public interests of the city. Farquhar Park is directly across the street from Lake Park, and is often confused for being the same park. Local residents use this piece of land for its open play area and picnic facilities. >

Fun Facts
  • Farquhar Park was once called Circle Park because it was surrounded by streets giving it a circular shape. In 1967, the land adjacent to Circle Park, which was separated by a street, was covered with clean fill thereby connecting the two parcels and creating one large park.
  • The land used to be an open dirt area used by the Boys and Girl Scouts for camping.
  • This park was dedicated on  May 22, 1970
  • Circle Park and Farquhar Plaza were joined together on November 20, 1967
  • Architect - Richard Bigler and Associates

Solar chimneys are passive solar ventilation systems. Shafts connect the interior and exterior of the building. The functioning can be improved by glazing and using thermal mass materials.  Learn more about solar.
