Orange County Great Park is a public park in Irvine on the site of the decommissioned Marine Corps Air Station El Toro.Attractions at the park include the Great Park Balloon, which can transport 25-30 flyers up to a height of 400 feet for 360-degree views out to 40 miles.

Riders will enjoy panoramic views of the Greater Orange County landscape and the ongoing construction of the park.

There's also the vintage-inspired carousel, which features hand-painted artwork inspired by the historical citrus agricultural origins of The OC, such as old-fashioned orange crate labels and scenic backdrops of fields.

Visitors will also find the Palm Court Arts Complex, which is home to the Great Park Gallery and the Great Park Artist Studios. This complex uses re-purposed military structures to form a diverse cultural campus.

Additionally, the Farm + Food Lab on-site serves as an interactive outdoor classroom for visitors of all ages to learn about food. This lab is home to raised-bed gardens, fruit trees, a chicken coop, a worm compost bin and solar and wind-powered lights.
