Prior to leaving California I came here several times to walk my dog. There seemed to be lots to do here. Sorry I never got a chance to do it all. They had horseback riding, fishing, hiking, picnic area and lots more. If I'd have lived nearby I would have been here all the time.

This is a wonderful place for nature hikes, cycling , picnicking,birthday parties, taking paddle boats across the lake, swinging and sliding with the kids. One can go horseback riding or just have the kids ride the horses in the designated areas. They have a great museum and wonderful California nature zoo. One can see owls, foxes, cougars, bears etc. etc.... More

It is a very big park. This time we were there for the zoo, but after we had enougth time to bike around they also have food and clean restrooms, water is available around the park. The are trails for walking or biking bring your own bikes or rent some here. I saw lots off dogs in leashes.

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.

We took a picnic lunch to the park while we waited for The Christmas Train to run. Plenty of tables and beautiful trees surround the eating area. We saw many peacocks strolling around which was fun. They have an info center talking about the local area back in the day with stuffed animals that you would find in that area.... More

Huge park with lots of trails, plenty of parking available,lots of shade trees. Easy access off Jamboree road. Great for Cross-country races. There is a railroad and zoo but I did not use either on this trip. Love this park!
