Please note: The City of Irvine has taken several precautionary safety measures to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our community. By emergency order, community centers, indoor facilities, and outdoor recreational spaces may be closed or have modified access until further notice.
Irvine outdoor park spaces remain open for passive use by individuals while wearing a face covering. In accordance with state guidelines, gatherings of people from more than three households are prohibited, and individuals must maintain physical distance from others outside of their group. Playgrounds are open. Athletic outdoor spaces may be open for practices, games, and competitions with modifications. Modified recreational programming is available to the community and registration is open at yourirvine.org. Learn more at the City Facility Updates webpage.
Nestled in the heart of Bommer Canyon is part of the old Irvine Ranch Cattle Camp. Some of the original structures exist today, adding to the rustic feel of the canyon. Bommer Canyon Community Park is also an important preservation area for many local plants and wildlife, including several endangered species.
Trails are open for hiking, mountain biking and horse-back riding. Please note that only some trails are open to the public for self-guided daily access while others are restricted to docent-led activities due to sensitive habitat. Dogs are not permitted on trails in Bommer Canyon, but they are permitted on City of Irvine's Quail Hill Loop Trail. View a map and directions to Bommer Canyon Trailhead here. View a trail map of the Irvine Open Space Preserve here.
