If you live anywhere near this park and have kids, the annual parks pass is a must! The grounds are extensive, and offers so much! In addition to its amazing zoo, the park offers horse rides, bike rides, train rides, and plenty of stuff to play on! This park is certainly a local treasure not to be missed!

They have several hiking trails, at different fitness levels. They have a great little zoo, a train you can ride, and some water activities, and bike rentals. Nice park to spend a day at, lots of things to do.

Love this park walking trails are great for all fitness levels. If you feel up for a challenge hit the puma ridge get to the top and you can get some great views. If you take the lower trails you can walk in the shade or the trees and watch the many varieties of birds.

They have an Easter extravaganza , pumpkin patch in October and Christmas celebration in December. The park is absolutely beautiful and a great place to picnic, jog or relax. They have paddle boats, bike rentals, a train that goes through the park and concession stands. Highly recommend this park to families especially during the holiday seasons.

I wnet to Irvine park as a child and I have continued the tradition as a mother and a grandmother. All nine of my g kids have spent time exploring the park, riding the train, riding the ponies, riding the horses and going to the zoo. It is perfect.

This early O C park is a local treasure. Having celebrated 100 years and still going strong this park is great for small or large family picnics, class reunion picnics, Saturday morning walks, Sunday afternoon in the park and so much more. There are gorgeous historic sycamore trees, a small lake with pedal craft, a snack bar, room to play... More

Fun place for all the kids. You can rent some paddle boats or bikes, or stop by the zoo. Spend a day playing at the park or go on some hikes, what ever age you have with you they should be able to find something to do!

A $3.00 weekday entrance fee ($5 weekend) allowed us to picnic under the shade of old oak trees, visit a small zoo ($2 each), ride the train ($5 each) and enjoy a pony ride ($5). Of course, in lieu of spending money, you can enjoy the shade and surroundings with a nice trail hike and picnic. Enjoy!

Love this place! Just wish the visitors on the weekends were more respectful with cleanliness. Avoid visiting the park on the weekends. The best part is the Zoo! Better than San Diego zoo and only $2! A bargain!
