Irvine Park is a great part of our community. My family visits numerous times throughout the year. Either to play on the playgrounds, visit the animals in the zoo or wander through the Christmas Village to view the lights. There are many great picnic spots...More
We drove through the park on recommendation. What a beautiful park. Wish we had time to hike. Cute free zoo with a black bear we could have watched for hours! It’s a small zoo, but they have some unusual animals, and Elk and Bison roaming...More
We went thru this zoo every day. We were staying on Glen Loch lake which is very near. Loved the outdoor enclosure for the bison, elk and others it was nice to see how much room they have to roam in. There is also the...More
We went here after touring and tasting beers at Leinenkugel's and having lunch because we needed to stretch our legs and burn off some of that tasty beer. We parked in a lot further into the park, but right by the bison. Being from Chicago,...More
We went to the park and did not expect to see bears, lions and lemurs. That is a very cool place and the admitance is free. A great way to spend a few hours walking the path of the park and viewing the different wild...More

The closing time is 8:00 pm. It is posted around the park and there are gates in strategic places where they close the park. I was there today and the new Welcome Center was not open yet. Saying mid-June. But the petting zoo farm is open, although not all the animals are out yet. The petting zoo is open Memorial Day thru Labor Day, Hours Daily 10:00am to 6:00pm.
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.

It's Irvine Regional Park in the city of Orange. The train is called the Irvine Park Railroad - it's open daily from 10a-4p - cost is $4 per person - 12 months and younger are free. Check out the website (google Irvine Park Railroad) they sometimes offer buy one ticket get one free for the train. coupons. There are also pony rides Tue-Sun from 11a-4p - my kids love the ponies, smaller kids ride walking ponies that you guide around a small trail, older kids can ride trotting ponies - also...More
