Location Spotlight: Irvine Regional Park


Irvine Regional Park is located in the hills of Orange, California a short distance from Corona, Irvine, and the north Orange County cities.

The park was part of the original Mexican Rancho Lomas de Santiago land grant in 1846. The area became the first regional park in Orange County in 1897 when gifted to the county by James Irvine for $1. The park has grown and been cared for by the county ever since.

One of the mandates of the Irvine's gift of the park was that the area be kept natural and the trees be well cared for.

The natural beauty of the area is on fully display to park visitors. Many recreational areas have been added to the park, including ball fields, playgrounds, bike paths, equestrian trails, and a 1/3-scale train.


This location is the ideal spot for family portraits when you want a outdoor/natural feel. The location is easy to get to and extremely photogenic.
