We went in December with the grandchildren and they enjoyed the zoo and all of the colored lights on the many trees. Very relaxing walking and looking at the many lights.

Enjoy all it has to offer such as nature hikes, walking paths, paddle boats, a train ride around the park, lakes, wild life, many playgrounds, lots of grassy... More

Small train, pony rides, water bikes, bike rentals, zoo, trails to hike, picnic areas, large park surrounded by oak trees. Great place! They always... More

We went to the Irvine ranch natural landmarks and hiked. It is a great place to see limestone cliffs, hills and valleys on a variety of hikes.

I love this park! Great trails for hiking or mountain biking. Just a few minutes on the trails and it feels like we are far away. We have seen rabbits, snakes, lots of birds, an occasional deer and a cute little fox. Most animals are around at sun-up or dusk.

Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed walking around the park. The zoo had some really good exhibits, especially the mountain lions and the bear.

This is a wonderful park for the family with a lovely little zoo. The zoo also has a self guided tour that you access through your cell phone. There are many trails and also rentals for bikes, surreys and paddle boats. Our kids enjoyed the many playgrounds and also wooded areas. For the holidays, they have nice train rides and... More
