The Promenade on Forest: Shopping, Dining, Art, and You! is an outdoor dining, display, and art performance area that creates a safe and exciting pedestrian-only experience on Forest Avenue from Coast Highway to Glenneyre Street in Downtown Laguna Beach. 

The Promenade design supports local businesses by expanding outdoor dining areas and merchandise display areas on Lower Forest Avenue.
