One of the most enjoyable parks in Orange County. Great hiking trails, horse back riding, playgrounds for kids, and lots of recreational rentals. There is also the OC Zoo which is a great price for a fun outing with kids.

Great space makes a break from the urban sprawl. Lakes, paths and trees make for great walks or bike rides. A small train will take you through the park or you can hire bikes and boats. At Halloween a pumpkin patch is a great attraction...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.
