  • One of my favorite local places. Something for everyone here. You can relax, exercise, BBQ, picnic, ride horses, bikes, got to the zoo. Anything you like. 
  • Really like with a child being here! Quiet family vacation. Greens, playgrounds, picnic, boat and bicycle hire, mini train, a small Zoo and all it's Irvine park! Child delighted by woodpeckers, which are present in large quantities in the Park and from peacocks wander where they like! There is a riding school! Recommend to visit families with children and without!

  • One of my favorite places to take our family. We have an annual pass for OC Parks and it's worth it! We usually find ourselves visiting in the early mornings on a weekend. I've noticed on our drive out the line gets long to drive into the park. My suggestion would be to get there early to beat the crowd. I'm not certain what the traffic is like during the weekdays. The train ride and OC Zoo are some of our family favorites and do not cost much. There is so much to do. I'm looking forward to more visits to see more of what this place has to offer. The only downfall, as with most parks, is the bathrooms! Bring soap and hand sanitizer with you and maybe even bring your own toilet paper.
  • The main park has lots of open space (grass), picnic areas, playgrounds, and walking and bike paths. The zoo is small but has lots of animals and a decent amount of shade as you walk. Thr train takes you through the grounds and whole mainly targeted at children, getting to see the vastness of the grounds is pretty nice. The best part of this place, though, are the trails surrounding the main park. My family and I bike the flat parts together, and then get off our bikes to hike or climb up some of the hills. The hiking trails in Irvine Regional, and the adjacent Santiago Oaks Park, are just fantastic, and I run there frequently. My husband bikes there as well. Parking on weekends starts to get crowded around lunchtime, so get there on the early side if you want ensure you can park in a particular lot. When you go early, there's tons. $3 on weekdays, or $5 on weekends, or you can get an annual pass for all OC Parks for $55 if you think you will go frequently.
  • Had an outing with the grandbaby. He loved it! Took a ride on the train an checked out the ponys. What a great outing.
  • Nice, quiet, alot to walk, hiking, really nice Place to do alot things at the same time..
  • Best park in Orange County! Beware, holiday weekends are out of control. Get here early if planning to come during holiday's. Lots to do here; biking, hiking, and nature browsing.
