OC Parks  OC Parks manages nearly 60,000 acres of parks, beaches and historic sites for the County of Orange, Calif.


Congratulations to our Planning & Design Division on being recognized for its work on the Wagon Wheel Creek Restoration Plan, which was recently named the Best Flood Management Project of the Year by the American Society of Civil Engineers, Orange County Branch.
Years of seasonal flooding of Wagon Wheel Creek, in Riley Wilderness Park, caused extensive erosion that threatened creek bank stability. This left the creek a major pollutant threat to other water bodies and a safety hazard for visitors. The improvements made through this project ensure that both the natural resources and recreational opportunities in the area are protected.

PARK CLOSURES: Santiago Oaks and Peters Canyon regional parks, and exterior trails at Irvine Regional Park, are closed as of 12 p.m. Jan 8. Current weather forecasts show heavy rain expected in Canyon Fire 2 burn areas, which pose the risk of mud and debris flows. While OC Parks has taken measures to reduce the risk, debris flows may still occur. Please stay out of closed areas for your safety. 🌧🌧🌧🌧

Something's fishy at Laguna Niguel Regional Park! 2,000 lbs. of trout, that is! 🎣 #fishing #lagunaniguel #trout

Meet our newest park rangers! Congratulations to Ranger Academy Class #5 on all your hard work.

Portions of Peters Canyon Regional Park will reopen on Saturday morning at 7 a.m. The three trails that remain closed are around the reservoir: Lake View Trail, Skylark Trail and Cactus Point Trail. For your safety, please stay on the trails and follow signs.
We will post upcoming volunteer opportunities to help with restoration on our Facebook page. See our Canyon Fire 2 page for the latest information: http://www.ocparks.com/parks/canyon_fire_2

After a damp weekend, some burn areas are showing the first signs of recovery. Letting habitat recover is an important process for the long-term health of parks and open spaces. Some areas may experience extended closures to allow proper recovery, much like Whiting Ranch did after the 2007 Santiago Fire. Please respect closures and know that we are working on opening some portions of affected parks as it is safe and prudent to do so. #canyonfire2

It's been two weeks since the #canyonfire2 was fully contained, but our park rangers are still coming across hazards and hot spots, like this one that was found in Irvine Regional Park this morning. This is a good reminder to stay out of closed areas, even as we continue to work toward opening portions of our closed parks.

Happy Halloween from the OC Zoo!
#happyhalloween #zootacular #oczoo #pumpkins #bear #mountainlion #islandfox #weasel

Back home and ready to see you! A big thanks to our zoo staff who safely evacuated the animals during the #canyonfire2! The animals are all back home and ready for visitors, starting tomorrow morning. Zoo staff have been working hard to get everything cleaned up and decorated for the annual Halloween Zoo-tacular next weekend!
The Zoo-tacular will take place on Saturday, October 28. Join us for trick-or-treating, spooky kids crafts, a scavenger hunt and fun games! Find more information on our event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/133723110594209/
The zoo and the @irvineparkrailroad Pumpkin Patch will be open, but portions of Irvine Regional Park are still closed for your safety.

PARK CLOSURES REMAIN: As the Canyon Fire 2 nears containment, OC Parks staff continue to assess damage to Irvine, Peters Canyon and Santiago Oaks regional parks. As of Monday afternoon, fire crews remained on scene and clearing hazardous trees. Some good news, however: many structures appear to have escaped damage. More good news: the Irvine Park Railroad will reopen tomorrow (Tuesday) with limited parking. Some interior areas of Irvine Park, including the zoo, may open this weekend, conditions allowing. Other areas remain closed. Please respect the closures. Thank you to firefighters who helped save nearly all the structures in the burned parks. #canyonfire2
