I've been there several times with my kids. They really enjoyed everything there, the train ride, the horse rides, walking around the park. Always excellent service. Fun for the family and kids.

The small train is located within the Irvine Park. Fun adventure for children, and adults. Makes you smile. Check days of availability not sure it operates year long. There is a small fee per ticket.

Great for families. You can get an annual pass good for all OC Parks! Animals (horses) to ride. Fireplaces, large park grounds and neat train to ride. Have special days at Easter, Christmas, and Holloween.

The railroad is a short ride through the park, by the riding ponies. The travel on the train is over rated and I think a let down for the kids. You can still see the ducks in the pond but that is about it.
