Irvine Open Space Preserve

Irvine’s incorporation in 1971 signaled a commitment to preserving both natural spaces and commercial infrastructure. This amazing master-planned community has been built in stages, with each one preserving and improving natural open areas to make way for a network of parks, trails, and wildlands for future generations to enjoy.

An important part of this landscape is the Irvine Open Space Preserve, which safeguards thousands of acres of native habitat and connects to other nearby natural areas such as the Cleveland National Forest, the San Joaquin Marsh, and the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park. Chaparral shrub thickets, riparian marsh, native grass meadows, oak woods, and exceedingly uncommon coastal sage scrub are just some of the native ecosystems that have been preserved thanks to the City’s dedication to protecting its natural resources.

Mule deer, bobcats, mountain lions, coyotes, and countless more endangered birds, animals, and reptiles all find a safe haven in this wildlife refuge. The Irvine Open Space Preserve is not only a safe haven for local flora and fauna, but also a unique amenity for the local population. Hiking, biking, and equestrian sports, as well as plein air painting, stewardship, and restoration programs, are just a few of the ways in which Irvine’s inhabitants and visitors may go out and experience the land.

Part of the historic Irvine Ranch, the Irvine Open Space Preserve is recognized as a Natural Landmark by the federal government and the state of California. Bommer Canyon, Jeffrey Open Space Trail, Shady Canyon, Quail Hill, and more are all part of the Irvine Open Space Preserve, where you may go hiking, mountain biking, or horseback riding on your own or with a docent.

The Open Space Preserve may be accessed from several trailheads around Irvine area, including the well-known Bommer Canyon, which provides visitors with the chance to explore the area on their own. The trails in Jeffrey Open Space and Turtleback Mountains are also worth mentioning.

The Irvine Open Space Preserve is linked to neighboring Orange County parks and preserves, creating an abundance of public property that belies the region’s high population density. In addition to Irvine Regional Park, the nearby areas of Crystal Cove State Park and Fremont Canyon Nature Preserve also contribute to the overall area. This area’s overall natural area is over 20,000 square feet.
