The Wall of Recognition, established in 2006 and located in Colonel Bill Barber Marine Corps Memorial Park, is a hallmark of Irvine. Even before Irvine became a city, there was a spirit of community activism, involvement and pride that set the tone for the municipality Irvine would become. Since the City's incorporation in 1971, hundreds of individuals have dedicated themselves in service to Irvine as mayors, City Council members, commissioners, committee members and leaders of community organizations. The Wall of Recognition honors these individuals, groups, organizations and businesses who have made significant contributions to the community. To date, 404 individuals and organizations have been honored by inclusion on the Wall of Recognition.
