Irvine at Its Best

Parks & Open Space

Irvine, Green From The Start

As the City of Irvine celebrates its 50th anniversary, its early ambitions to be a green city have become a reality. The City has built a national reputation for environmental leadership, where residents benefit from accessible open space, clean water and spacious parks. Our masterfully planned villages continue to be accessible by roads, walkways and bike paths and our homes are designed to take advantage of views of the surrounding, conserved nature. Irvine’s coveted status as one of America’s greenest cities continues to be its greatest gift to our residents. Learn how Irvine was master-planned to be one of America's most livable cities through this commemorative guide published and distributed in the Los Angeles Times - Irvine at 50.
