The park has a train, zoo, lots of places for kids to run and climb. There are peacocks walking around and horses, paddle boats and trails. Easter, Halloween and Christmas all have special activities for the kids!

I took my niece here and had a really good time. The part is very large & has many options of things to do. We rented a double bicycle to drive around & also a paddle boat. The park is very well maintained---a cool place.

Finally decided to check out the OC Zoo inside the park...so worth it! We went on Mother's Day so paid $7. for park entrance then it was $2pp for the Zoo, under 2 free. Beavers were swimming, Mountain lions playing, bear lumbering, porcupines fighting Eagles flying...all these animals were very close for viewing. The petting zoo was fun. This zoo... More

Great regional park. My boys enjoy the pony rides, train ride and the zoo. Many trails for hiking and riding bikes. Sometimes gets too crowded for my taste, especially during holiday weekends.

I came to this park mid-week to spend time with family. We rented a bike that fit two adults and a child in the bike. We got a few dollars off by using coupons we found online. We rode all over the park. It was a great time. Lots of bike paths and friendly staff. In addition, we also rode... More

Over my years as an Orange County Resisdent I have come to this park as a child, brought my children to this park and now I'm bringing my grandchildren. The train ride and pony rides are favorites and we always have to go to the zoo. It's a perfect size for small children. The park setting in the Irvine hills... More

Took the kids horseback riding at the horse ranch inside the park at CT Trail Rides for $45 an hour. It was great! The trail is very scenic and beautiful. The guide was friendly and fun! You can also go for a 2 hr ride for $90. They only take cash. $5 entrance fee to the park. This attraction is... More

I've been to Orange County many times but never visited this park. Open space, so green with a small train to tour the grounds and horses in small, med. and large size. Go to the back of the park to find the nature center, with all native animals. From Beavers to Bears to Mt. Lions, all rescued or injured and... More

Irvine Park is a delight. We walk, mountain bike, hike with the grandkids and enjoy the several attractions the park offers like the zoo, the pony rides and the boats. All fun. Hint: come near sunset and you might see some of the park's hidden wildlife.
