  • Took a stroll to the park. It was fun to walk, look around, lots of lights at night, lots of soccer going on. The place felt safe, and was a great place for an evening stroll.  more »
  • This Great Park is NOT great yet, and might never be. For me, the only real attraction is the helium balloon ride. You can ride pretty far up on the tethered balloon to get a realy great view of the a...  more »
  • We keep getting promises of great things, but it's still a bit disappointing. Seems like someone has been wasting quite a bit of money trying to make this area interesting.  more »

  • The Orange Balloon ride was quite nice, no winds, cool weather and rather serene and surreal when you float up high. It looks like you are looting down on a toy city, even with the train chugging by below, and planes coming in for landing. The ballon can get a little lopsided if everyone is standing on one side. It's a great family event for a ten minute ride. The hanger with history bits on on the area was neat too!
  • I must have missed the turn off to the "OC Great Park", because the little I found at this location wasn't anything like what I voted for 15 years ago. Among other details, that park was going to look like this: "the Great Park will be larger than New York's Central Park, San Francisco's Golden Gate Park and San Diego's Balboa Park... and include a 2.5-mile (4.0 km) canyon, a 26-acre (110,000 m2) lake, botanical gardens, a cultural terrace, lawns, performing arts venues, a sports park, and a wildlife corridor connecting the Cleveland National Forest to the Laguna Coast Wilderness." Bait and switch perhaps?
  • Very large cool park with lots to do. The balloon ride is really cool.
  • Very lush and green, definitely a fun place to come with friends or family, hopefully going to grow into the centerpiece of Irvine in the near future
  • Great for children. Ballon ride was also available. Best time to go for a ballon ride would be after 8pm, as when you reach 400 feet high, the panoramic view of the city all lit up is beautiful!
