Bill Barber Park in Irvine

We love Bill Barber Park in Irvine! The park has a huge tot lot with equipment for all ages. There are bridges so kids can get onto the equipment from the upper level and vice versa. It also has a great climbing area, and distinct separate play equipment for toddlers and big kids. My daughter also loves the “froggie fountain,” which is a beautiful fountain in the center of a trellis lined courtyard area. The first time we went there we were a little confused on where to park. Off of Harvard, you will turn into the parking lot at the light “San Juan.” There is usually plenty of parking. Click this link for directions. There are 4 nice covered picnic areas, the restroom is close-by, and as luck would have it for me this weekend, a concession was open for the soccer games when I was in dire need of a Diet Coke fix! Only downfall is that other than the covered picnic areas, there is not a lot of shade, so wear your hats and SPF in the summer months as it can get a bit toasty.
