Peaceful and calm. Even the ducks on the water seem content and at ease just swimming around. Just a reminder...don't feed the ducks. (The locals frown on that and will let you know...lol) a very relaxing park.

If you’re in the Orange area of CA then this is a cool place to check out. Lots of good things to see and do. The reason I didn’t give a five star review is because when we visited on the day after Easter Sunday...More

Love the horse backnriding trails. Horses and staff very friendly. Also their zoo is cheap like $2 to get in and they have active animals to visit and a petting zoo. Lots of fun.

Between the train, the horses, us and the zoo we always end up with some really happy grandkids when we head out here. The events tend to be fun. A nice place, definitely family oriented. Haven't been here since the fire a couple of weeks...More

I love this park. It's huge, has boats to rent, horses, pony rides, a train for kids, the little OC Zoo, and tons of nature. We've seen hawks and eagles and all kinds of wild life here! Beautiful locale for picnics or wedding photos.

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.
