Walkable Timeline

Please note: The City of Irvine continues to follow state and local health and safety guidelines. Face coverings are required for visitors inside all City facilities, regardless of vaccination status, with some exemptions as outlined in the California Department of Public Health Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings. Recreational programming is available to the community for registration at yourirvine.org

Great Park Balloon flights and Carousel rides have resumed.



Great Park Walkable Historical Timeline is laid out on one of the former Marine Corps Air Station El Toro's taxiways, and guides visitors through the major events of the 1940s. This timeline pays homage not only to a pivotal decade in our world history, but also to the military roots of Great Park.

In honor of the City of Irvine's 50th anniversary of incorporation, the Walkable Historical Timeline is scheduled for refurbishment. Visit this page for the most updated information and project updates.
