Crystal Cove State Park
Envelop yourself in sunshine and embrace the fresh tidal air at Crystal Cove State Park. Situated within the larger region of Newport Beach, the park includes coastal cliffs, an extensive natural conservation area and an idyllic beachfront cove that runs for 5 kilometres along the Pacific Ocean. Immerse yourself in nature and play witness to over 180 bird species native to the area. Thrill seekers can mountain bike, horseback ride, and snorkel or scuba dive off the coast. And for those looking for an extended stay, the park offers a number of campsites nestled within the park.
Located only moments from Aurum, visitors to Tanaka Park are transported from the hustle of the city to a peaceful outdoor farm. Founded in the early 1900s by Japanese immigrants resettling in California, Tanaka Farms offers over 30 acres of produce, fruit, and flowers. Enjoy a strawberry or sunflower picking tour, and traipse through the renowned pumpkin patch every fall. You won’t find fruit, produce and flowers fresher than this.
Used a military base during the second world war, Great Park has been repurposed as an innovative and educational outdoor community space. The attractions reflect the City of Irvine’s dedication to historical preservation, sustainable practices, and family-friendly activities. Airplane hangars now showcase exceptional galleries featuring the history of Irvine during the war, and a cultural terrace is being developed. The park features over 1,300 acres of amenities, and one notable feature is the hot air balloon where visitors can take in the aerial views of the region.
