Although a bit of a drive (from my house) this park was totally worth it. The zoo is perfect for young kids, very inexpensive and I was quite impressed with the variety and amount of animals. The train ride was a hit for my 2 and 4 year old. They also loved feeding the ducks and playing on the playground.... More

It's really big and has so many activities including zoo, fishing, biking, railroad, and special monthly events. It's also a great place to run. Very easy to schedule large and small events or just enjoy the day with family. Check out the website before going to see all that is offered for each season.

We had a terrific family outing with multiple generations plus our dog at the park. We loved the ponds, the wildlife, plus the peacocks. Being able to buy a light snack made it super easy to keep our day going and everyone happy. We will return!

I grew up in OC, well before Irvine as a city even existed. But the park was always here. It's matured, the facilities are nice. A great place for those with youngsters in tow. Lake, bbqs, horses.

This place has everything. My granddaughter loved the petting zoo. Not only do they have all kinds of animals, but one can even brush the goats! They also have a wonderful train that goes through the park. It is a twelve minute ride where you can preview th other attractions in the park. These include picnic areas, pony rides, and... More

The oldest county regional park in California established in 1897 and it has aged well. Hundreds of oak and other beautiful shade trees through the park. Hiking and bicycle trails galore. A classic train ride for a nominal fee worth the money. Pony rides for kids one year old and older are available as well as rental horses for adults.... More

We loved the ability to meet with all our family. The zoo was family friendly, albeit small. The paddle boats were cool, gave us a good workout, but a spray jet might have been fun to help cool you off if you wanted or a fountain, the water was pretty murky and full of weeds, so you couldn't consider taking...

A great place to get the kids out and running. You can rent bicycles and even pedal boats on the lakes. Simple kids meals are available. On a good day you can even fly kites!

We didn't get to stay very long, but we really liked this park! It's in a picturesque part of town. It's very large; great for family gatherings. We had a few young kids who loved the train ride. We got to see peacocks. They have many other things to do like pathways to walk on, lakes to fish in or... More
