The state’s first regional county park celebrated its 125th anniversary this weekend in Orange with a party that looked back on its history and celebrated its future.
OC Parks opened the all-day celebration of the founding of Irvine Regional Park in 1897 by unveiling a new archway shield welcoming visitors.
