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 713 acres of parkland. Within that acreage is the development of a 194-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.
Walt Disney Productions designed the El Toro “Flying Bull” logo for MCAS El Toro in 1943. Visit the Great Park Gallery beginning June 3 for an exhibition of this and about 1,200 designs during World War II that came out of the studio. Click here for Great Park Gallery hours and information.
