Nice open space park. Decent sized lake in the middle with ducks, mud hens, geese, herons and turtles! Play spaces fro the younger (under 12) kids. Lots of grass upon which to play, throw a ball or have a picnic.

A fantastic place, well taken care of. It's super silent during early hours (6AM~7AM), making it a perfect place to walk, jog and work out. For runners, it might be a little bit more difficult than normal tracks as there are lots of curves.

The park is large and quiet on most days. It is an excellent place to take a relaxing long stroll. We attended the free concert and movie in mid-July. The events were so fun and interesting. Our daughter even went up the stage to dance...More

Mason Park is operated by the County of Orange, and they do a heck of a good job here during these events, with free parking provided. Movies begin at sunset, concerts at 6:00 PM. For the concerts ONLY, alcohol is allowed in the park during...More
