The 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 the Orange County Great Park.

Recently, the Walkable Historical Timeline was completely re-imagined with a new aesthetic look and was expanded from 750 feet to 2,604 feet. It includes 162 significant historical events and serves as a natural connection between the Great Park Balloon and the reflecting ponds and viewing pier.
