Very pretty HUGE park ... a few areas were over run with large non-english speaking family events so if you want a table etc. get there early. Train, paddle boat, and pony rides are not cheap but cute. Food available during normal hours.

I absolutely love walking at Irvine regional park. There are several trails that seem like you are 100 miles away from town. The rangers are helpful if you have any questions.

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.
