Ruben F. Salazar Park (formerly Laguna Park) is a park in East Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, California.

It is administrated by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation.

The park is located at 3864 Whittier Boulevard, about 2 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles.

It was renamed "Salazar Park" in honor of slain journalist Rubén Salazar, who was killed nearby in 1970.[1]
