This is a beautiful and well-equipped park, very clean, through which you travel to get to the grove of trees. It's not a long or taxing walk (although we are fairly fit people). The paths are well made (we had a stroller to push) and the lake and the BBQs are lovely. The grove was beautiful and very special -... More

I'd visited the park several times but only walked the paved trails. Then I discovered the dirt trails leading south to the redwood grove and the nature trail. What a surprise. I would have never expected to find redwoods in Orange County. The dirt trails are definitely the best part of the park.

It's a good place for just relaxing. View is ok in the summer, but when we get there the lake is gone. Overall, I won't recommend.

My husband and I take our two dogs there for a long and peaceful walk. There are tennis courts, BBQ stations and tables, nice restrooms.

Haven't visited this park for maybe 30 years (yes really!) and it was surprising beautiful. Our multi-generational group enjoyed a picnic, a long hike to the redwoods, and playing around the park. It didn't feel like we were so close to the city but yet it took only minutes to get here - we'll be back for sure!

This park is such a nice getaway right in the middle of a great and bustling city. Barely a mile away from a busy freeway (57) fwy, but once inside, you seem to be miles away in the middle of a natural wilderness area! There are ample walking trails, picnic areas, parking, etc.

Nice park in a very suburban area, a little hideaway to walk along the trails and the stream. Pretty birds, wildlife and nature.

Carbon Canyon Park is the best park in So Cal to visit. See many types of wildlife with super hiking trails. As a special treat, see the only Redwood forest in Southern CA.
