  • One of the activities in this amazing park. The younger set loves it. And it is a popular ride through some of the park.  more »
  • My young kids and some of my older kids still like riding the train at Irvine Park. It's a nice, easy ride through a tree-canopied part of the park. Try the off-peak time, though, it can get to be a l...  more »
  • This was one of the places I loved bringing the twins on a routine 8-10 times a month. We purchased a park annual pass and loved taking the train ride around the park. We really enjoyed the Pumpkin Pa...  more »

  • Very fun for kids, all ages, and just a pleasant place to spend a Saturday. But be aware that it can be excessively busy during peak weekends. We went close to Halloween and it took forever to even get into the park and then to find a parking space. But we've also visited on calmer weekends and there's been no wait driving in and no trouble finding great parking. The Railroad specifically is a small-scale train 15 minute ride through the park, and it's interesting to hear what the driver points out throughout the tour. We've also rented surreys here, and had a great time! They offer helmets free with rentals, and while the little kid's helmets don't fit perfectly, it's great to have the option if you forget to bring your child's own helmet for the rentals. The zoo is small but charming. What we haven't tried, but I'm looking forward to, are the pony rides next to the railroad depot for little ones, and, sometime, horseback rides available on the other side of the park, because they have some great horse-riding trails throughout the park.
  • So many options for everyone, great picnic areas for families, the railroad keeps the kiddos happy and there are recreation activities nearby also.
  • Always A LOT of fun when my family and I go to the Irvine Regional Park for Halloween. We've somewhat made it a family tradition to go every year, and have been going for the past 3 years now. We went once for the Christmas season, but want as enjoyable. Definitely go for Halloween... See you next year IRP (Irvine Regional Park)
  • fun little park in Irvine. their pumpkin patch is very popular and a great place for pictures. note that parking is $6 and hard to come by during peak weekends
  • This 15 minute train ride through the historic park is awesome! Great for kids of any age! My 8 month old twins LOVED it! The conductor points out historic parts of the park and spouts out interesting facts with a sense of humor! Weekdays are best if you want to avoid crowds! Super cheap too! It was only $2 when we went yesterday because they were celebrating their anniversary so not sure what price is regularly but I'm sure its $5 or less
