On Sunday, Jason and I took the kids to Irvine Park in Irvine, CA. We love Irvine Park and go a lot, especially during the summer months when the kids are out of school. We also love going during the holidays – we’ve been for Easter, Halloween, and Christmas and plan to do so until the kids get too old and aren’t interested anymore.
This weekend was opening weekend for Irvine Park’s Easter Eggstravaganza. All decked out and ready for the Easter Bunny, there are many fun activities for kids and families of all ages.
Irvine Park Easter Eggstravaganza
Easter Egg Hunt
You can hunt for Easter eggs filled with candy, stickers, free train tickets, and more! Children are separated by age group for each Easter egg hunt and participation is limited to ensure that all children can find Easter eggs. This activity is known to sell out, so if you are planning on attending with the kids, make sure to get there early. Times are listed on the website.
Yep, the Easter Bunny is visiting Irvine Park right now! The kids got to meet and have their photo taken with the Easter Bunny. Photos are available for purchase, and are printed in a few, short minutes.
What visit to Irvine Park would be complete without a ride on the Irvine Park Railroad?! We all enjoy the 12-minute ride through Irvine Park. The engineer will narrate the train ride and point out areas of interest inside of the park… including the 300 year old historic oak grove, lakes, and historic landmarks. The kids love it, and it’s always the first thing they want to do.
The train rides are a great way to relax for a few minutes in between running between activities, too.
What kid doesn’t love to get their face painted? Well, Lila for one. She prefers the arm tattoo. Wherever your child prefers to get painted, they can choose what they’d like to have painted on. Whether a tiger, kitty cat, or Hello Kitty, the skilled face painters can make it happen.
With 1 ticket, children can try their luck at two carnival-style Easter games. That’s a lot of fun AND every child wins a prize! Ethan got a shark, Lila got a fish, and Mia got an Easter Bunny…and they all had fun doing it. I like that every child is a winner.
There’s so much more to do at the Irvine Park Easter Eggstravaganza including hay rides, cookie decorating, bouncy houses, picture stands and more. Families can rent bikes, paddle boats, visit the zoo, feed the ducks, have a picnic and still more.
Our family loves Irvine Park, and if you are in Southern California I highly recommend visiting! It’s an inexpensive, fun way to spend the day…especially with this fantastic weather we are having!
