Having a kid's birthday party here is a treat since the guests can take a nice ride around the park in a railroad train. My nephew loves trains and he enjoyed riding the train 4 or 5 times in a row. Wow!

One of the activities in this amazing park. The younger set loves it. And it is a popular ride through some of the park.

My young kids and some of my older kids still like riding the train at Irvine Park. It's a nice, easy ride through a tree-canopied part of the park. Try the off-peak time, though, it can get to be a long wait.

We drove out to Irvine to visit the pumpkin patch this year. It was horrendous to get in to the park and to find parking. We may have arrived at a busy time (11:30am), but the park had been open for a few hours so...More

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.
