The Orange County Great Park, on a section of the former Marine Corps Air Station El Toro, continues its evolution across approximately 1,300 acres as it attracts visitors to its ongoing amenities. The City of Irvine-owned Great Park is an arts and sports recreational hub. Currently under development are 688 acres of parkland. Within that acreage is the development of a 175-acre Sports Park. Public-private partner Five Point Communities is opening its adjacent private land with new homes and non-residential, including a land sale to Broadcom Corp. near the Great Park that is expected to be a business magnet.
The public is invited to a community ice facility groundbreaking at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 16, at the Orange County Great Park. An Anaheim Ducks affiliate and the City of Irvine will co-host the ceremony to begin construction of one of the largest public ice facilities in the U.S.
