I have gone with both family young and old as well as old relationships. The trails are beautiful in the summer and it's a great atmosphere for the kids. I missed seeing the butterfly exhibit and I hope it's back this summer.

We've gone to Irvine a few times with my 3 year old son. He likes the Nature Center animals (turtles, snakes, fish, bird) and taking short nature walks on the trails. There's even an indoor kids playroom with books, puzzles, and nature toys. Check out...More
