Fall is here and the pumpkin patch at the Irvine Park Railroad is now open until October 31st. My family and I took a field trip to the park this past weekend and had a wonderful experience. Read on to find out what happened. Disclaimer: Sponsored post. All thoughts and opinions are all my own.
Fall in California is beautiful at the Irvine Park Railroad because of the gorgeous vintage Oak Trees and the natural beauty of the surroundings. It is such a peaceful place to play with the family. This time of year, the park has pumpkins, rides, games and food for sale. The park uses tickets to ride the rides and play the games. Each ticket is $5.00 which is good for one train ride. The best deal in town is the book of 15 tickets for $60.00. I highly recommend you buy the book if you have more than two kids. There are free activities such as the Haunted House, Straw Maze and lots of fun photo opportunities. Kids ages 12 months or younger ride the train and hay ride for free with a paid adult admission.
Wear your comfortable shoes and stay all day long to enjoy a list of activities such as the Train Ride, Hay Ride, Moon Bounce, John Deere Racers, Carnival Games, Cookie Decorating, Panning for Gold, Face Painting, Mini Haunted House and the Straw Maze. Not enough for you to do, then head over to the OC Zoo which is within walking distance of the pumpkin patch. Nearby there is a lake with hungry ducks waiting to be feed small bread crumbs. Next to the lake, there is a bike and paddle boat rental for adventurous people. The park has many fun things to do all year long, but fall is a favorite time to take pictures and enjoy the crisp fresh air. Don't forget to take a jot around the stable on the pony ride.
