I love this park. It's huge, has boats to rent, horses, pony rides, a train for kids, the little OC Zoo, and tons of nature. We've seen hawks and eagles and all kinds of wild life here! Beautiful locale for picnics or wedding photos.

My little one loved the train! If he were older we would have definitely rented a bike with a carrier in the front. Great park with lots of amenities. Visit the zoo while there as well! You will not be disappointed!

Irvine Regional Park is very crowded on weekends in the summer. It seems that virtually every picnic area is occupied at all times. It is a large, green, grassy park with lots of old trees (some beautiful oaks). The landscape is virtually flat. It costs...More

Majority of the group areas have shade. Some however have none. There are lots of bees at the park that are attracted to sweets such as soft drinks.
