County regional parks are expecting large crowds on Sunday, March 31 due to two coinciding holidays.
Two of the busiest holidays each year – Easter and Persian New Year – both fall on March 31 this year. This will likely fill regional parks to parking capacity very early in the day. Once this happens, visitors must find other legal parking outside of the parks.
Go green and celebrate this St. Patrick’s Day holiday with OC Parks. O’Neill Regional Park, Irvine Regional Park, OC Zoo and Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve are all presenting themed special events on March 17 to get you into the Irish spirit.
OC Parks will be working on campus plan improvements at their headquarters inside Irvine Ranch Historic Park in Irvine.
On January 29, 2013, the Board of Supervisors approved the project’s plans and specifications, and the list of contractors who prequalified to bid on the preservation work. The Board authorized OC Parks to solicit bids per the attached notice inviting bids.
OC Parks is currently working to remove approximately 25 acres of invasive Arundo vegetation along a 3.7 mile section of Aliso Creek. This project will also allow for re-propagation of existing native plants, improve water quality, and reduce the risk of flooding and fire. This is one of several projects to completely remove Arundo and other invasive plants from the Aliso Creek watershed.
