Walkable Timeline

Please note: The City of Irvine continues to follow state and federal health and safety guidelines to protect the public against COVID-19 infection. Face coverings are recommended, and required in certain settings as outlined in the California Department of Public Health Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings.



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.
