The Orange County Great Park has become a central location for Southern California sports and fitness activities. It is designed to accommodate the local demands of the sports community, while attracting high level, regional and national sports programs.
This 30-acre sports complex highlights two natural and two artificial tournament-quality, lighted fields; spectator viewing area; giant chess sets; extension of the Walkable Historical Timeline; a facility operations building with restrooms; and a one-mile Kaiser Permanente Thrive Path for walkers and runners. At the west end of the South Lawn is a pair of reflecting ponds with a redwood viewing pier that offers visitors an opportunity to stop and take in the view, while serving as part of the Park’s water management system.
A non-lighted, 7-acre multipurpose recreation area is home to sports and activities of all types. From field reservations to an open recreation space for families to enjoy, the North Lawn offers an opportunity to explore one’s athletic abilities.
Kaiser Permanente Thrive Path
The Kaiser Permanente Thrive Path encourages visitors to exercise and explore the South Lawn and North Lawn area. Signage along the path educates visitors about health, nutrition and fitness. It is a great way for parents to stay active while their children attend sports practices, and many utilize it as their daily run path.
