Love the large area to take kids and pets out. The greatest feature are the local events they host here from farmers markets to international festivals. The mainstay here is the ballon ride and the carousel. Make sure to go on good weather days or else they’ll close the ballon ride.

A huge park wit a soccer stadium, baseball field, volleyball courts and more. Visually should get better as it ages.

Huge park located in Irvine. They have free events and concerts during the summer. Plenty of parking and well-maintained.

Tethered helium balloon for unprecedented views of the coast, ocean, mountains and city.

So fun flying in the balloon. So cute in October when they put a pumpkin face on the balloon.

Love this! Clean environment. Always a beautiful view. Goes up pretty high. Watch the weather. It could get windy up there.

This park is unique: a small slice of green surrounded by the Santa Ana mountains, highways and the constant sounds of construction. They have a walking timeline of human history which you can read as you stroll down the main entry of the park, as well as various ball fields. Unlike most parks, this one has a hot air balloon ride ($10), so you can see a bird’s eye view of the city. There is a merry-go-round and tucked in the back, a small vegetable garden. Parking is free, and everything else in the park is free, except for the hot air balloon. They have a free Farmer’s Market on Sunday mornings where they sell the veggies grown in the park garden.

This is a great place to go once in awhile just to walk around. Of course, we're only looking at maybe 10% of what it will be in the future. I'm pretty excited for there to be such a great destination in Irvine of all places. For now, walk around and marvel at the huge pots and plants.... take a ride on the hot air balloon... go on the weekend where they have the farmer market going... not much to do... but it's free!

They use to have free balloon rides at the Orange County Great Park but now they charge $10 a person. Expensive considering our tax dollars paid for the park and not much activity goes on. They have small movie events here too but not really worth it in my opinion.

So whatever happened to El Toro Air Station? Like some of you other Yelpers you may remember coming and watching the Blue Angels here as a kid. Let alone a million other awesome airplanes. I remember seeing an F-17 from across the runway and all kinds of F-18s, F-14s, F-15s, F-16s etc. It was always an awesome event to go check out. Then the base got closed and all that fun and frivolity disappeared. :(

Well fast forward 20 years and finally ETAS has been reborn. It is now the OC Great Park. Built on the old ETAS Tarmac and runways. The whole experience there is a free service paid for by our tax dollars so I would hope everyone would go at least once or twice. They have a huge number of great things happening here:

The Great Park Carousel
The Great Park Balloon Ride
The Great Park Farmers Market
The Great Park Playground

The best part about this place is that it is all FREE! The Balloon Ride, the Carousel, check out sports equipment, the playground, etc. You do have to pay for the farmers market foods though... hey not everything in life is free so quit your bellyaching.

They have a large FREE parking lot though. I can't more highly suggest taking advantage of your tax dollars than this. It's not often that a lot of us can get something back for all that we pay into the system. So when we can, we should! This is one of those super beneficial situations.

My daughter absolutely loves everything about this whole place. From the misted playground with climbing rocks, to taking countless rides on the carousel, and the whole balloon encounter... awe inspiring for a munchkin. So please check it out sometime.

The largest attraction at the Great Park is the orange hot air balloon ride that you can take for $10 per person. There’s also a carousel and plenty of open space for kids to run around. There are also supposed to be some small art and educational exhibits, but all of them were closed when I was there. The hot air balloon rides were also suspended when I was there since the weather was deemed too windy. The highlight of the trip here was running into a farmer’s market on the way out of the park.

Boo to all the naysayers! So what if it didn't turn into an airport? It is what it is and you just need to let it go.

The Great Park is still in completion stages. The only value you'll get is the Thursday-Sunday balloon ride granted there is no line so call ahead or the newly launched Farmer's Market on Sundays from 11am-2pm. If you go to their website, there's plenty more in the works for this expansive land and I can definitely see the potential for the future.

Getting here is tricky. The entrance is off of Marine Way underneath the 5 overpass so look carefully but if you're exiting off the freeway its a dead shot but coming from Sand Canyon just follow the brown signs. Park employees are friendly and there's a visitor's center full of information pertaining to the park as well as other signs and markers pointing out various things of interest.

The balloon is the main attraction. It's decorated like a pumpkin for Halloween and goes up 300-400 feet offering great views of Orange County. I think I've found a new Sunday fun activity.

There's nothing much to this park right now. There's basically a merry go-around and a hot air balloon. The hot air balloon is free, but the sign-up sheet fills FAST on weekend.

I didn't know that since it was my first time visiting, so I was kind of sad about it. But, no worries, there's the merry go-around that you get to go on over and over again. I was like a old kid fighting with the new kids trying to get the horses I want! I went on it twice; it was definitely a blast.

With all that said, this place still has a lot of developing to go.

Tip: Come before 10:00am on weekends if you expect to get on it between the 10 ~ 3 shift and before 6:00 for the 7 ~ 10 shift.

Hot air balloon is a nice attraction for tourist and local families to visit. On sunday, there is a Farmers Market that has great music, food trucks and a variety of different vendors.

They have a nice farmer's market every Sunday from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. There are usually four to six food trucks there too so it's fun even if you don't need farm fresh produce.

Try the balloon ride! Love the Farmers Market here every Sunday because some of hottest local food trucks like Barcelona and Crepes Bonaparte frequently visit and I'm a tad obsessed with them. ;) Also, there are free workshops like screen printing, and summer concerts.

When you fly into John Wayne Airport (aka Orange County Airport or SNA), you'll see a orange dot on the horizon. This is it. It's a giant orange balloon housed on a former military base, way out almost to Tustin. Amazingly, it's free. You can climb aboard the blimp-like balloon, rise up 400 feet and get a birds-eye view of the area. Keep in mind that it doesn't have an address, but it's at the corner of Sand Canyon Avenue and Marine Way.
