My 4 year old and 1 year old loved the pony ride and the train. The zoo was great too. It's a beautiful setting and fun for the whole family. We will definitely visit again!

We visited Irvine Regional Park in February, 2014 as we wanted to do some geocaching, hiking, and basically get out to the great outdoors. This is a beautiful park with lots of hiking areas, geocaches, picnic areas, a zoo, large open space areas (read lawns) and peacocks! The area is very family friendly and pet friendly but it can get... More

This is one of those places that you could easily overlook if you didn't know it was there -- but DON'T miss it. There is SO MUCH to do here; including a zoo, train rides, duck ponds, all for a nominal parking fee. There's also fishing, biking, etc., etc., etc...if you've never checked it out, you owe it to yourself!

Nice variety to see/do. Pond with geese/ducks, pony rides, small train rides. Lots of picnic and open grassy areas for playing games. Good bike riding trails. There is a fee for entrance.

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
