I wish we had something like this by our home! The park is so peaceful, lots of nice walking trails and the zoo is a nice plus. Animals look healthy and cared for.

Irvine park with train? (2 Replies)
I lived in CA over 10 years ago and I seem to remember there being a park with a train that you could ride. I believe the park was in Irvine, but I could be wrong. My son LOVES trains and I would like to take him to ride the train on our upcoming trip. Does anyone have information for me? Thanks in advance.
