“My friend and I took our preschool age kids we were literally the only people there one of the days we visited. Honestly, the kids and we absolutely loved the chance simply to be in pristine nature whose features vary so much from forest to open meadow to wetlands. Stopping for snacks in the gazebo, then spotting and studying a toad on the trail we’re huge bonuses. The various bridges were huge pleasers. The staff that greeted us upon entering were incredibly cheerful and energetic. Great way to enter Irvine.” -Irvine Member
