Irvine Regional Park Maintenance Area Improvements, Orange County, CA

Irvine Regional Park is nestled among a grove of heritage Oak and Sycamore trees. The rolling foothills surrounding the park are filled with a variety of wildlife. Trees and shaded turf areas provide a serene setting for leisure activities. Santiago Creek bisects the park and a pond with stone-work waterfall and footbridge is located in the center of the park. The variety of landscape greatly enhances the park’s beauty.

For almost 90 years, the 475-acre park had been maintained by a large crew of County employees and volunteers working from an outmoded collection of dilapidated shop buildings, storage facilities and offices. Design of the much-needed replacement facility began in 2008, and construction was completed in 2013 after a series of delays, budgetary challenges and redesign.

The new facility features pre-engineered office and shop buildings, reconfigured material storage areas. It was designed to preserve the grove of heritage oak trees which shades the area and achieved LEED silver equivalent.
