Celebrate National Park and Recreation Month at Irvine Play Day July 28

The City of Irvine is hosting Irvine Play Day on Thursday, July 28, to celebrate National Park and Recreation Month at Adventure Playground, Great Park, and Lakeview Senior Center. Residents are invited to drop in between 3 and 6 p.m. for games, treats, and giveaway items to celebrate Irvine’s top‑rated parks and centers.

July is also recognized at the state level by the California Park and Recreation Society as Parks Make Life Better Month.
