  • I've been there several times with my kids. They really enjoyed everything there, the train ride, the horse rides, walking around the park. Always excellent service. Fun for the family and kids. 
  • I took my grandchildren to Irvine park and they couldn't wait to get on the train. The conductor was very friendly and great with the kids. 
  • I love this whole park and the train ride attraction they have there. I rode it for the first time as a cute, silly date with my husband and loved it. There is a place to by food right next to it so w...  read 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.
  • Everytime I go there I really really enjoy it with my family pony rides bike rides also you can paddle in Lake.
  • So many options for everyone, great picnic areas for families, the railroad keeps the kiddos happy and there are recreation activities nearby also.
  • 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
  • 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)
