Ruben F. Salazar Park (formerly Laguna Park) is a public park in Los Angeles, California, and is administrated by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation.

The park, located about 2 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles, at 3864 Whittier Boulevard, was renamed "Salazar Park" in honor of slain news reporter Rubén Salazar, killed nearby in 1970.[1]
