Moving forward the 1,300-acre park located in the City of Irvine will be known as Great Park.
IRVINE- The Irvine City Council approved a modification to the name of the Orange County Great Park at their meeting July 27. The action will drop “Orange County” from the park’s name, to be more reflective of the ownership of the park and its growing national appeal.
“The City of Irvine is a top destination that is home to multiple attractions, including Great Park,” said Mayor Farrah N. Khan. “We are proud of this state-of-the art amenity, which draws internationally-known artists, national sports teams and competitions, and visitors from across the country. The modified name better represents the City where it resides, and how this amenity is owned and operated.”
Updates reflecting the name of Great Park will be completed in a phased approach, utilizing existing resources responsibly to minimize the financial impacts of the modification. The new website address will be yourgreatpark.org, reflecting the universal appeal and broad use of Great Park. The park’s social media accounts will also be updated to @yourgreatpark.
Since its incorporation in 1971, Irvine has become a nationally recognized city, with a population of 271,564 that spans 66 square miles and is recognized as one of America’s safest and most successful master-planned urban communities. Top-rated educational institutions, an enterprising business atmosphere, sound environmental stewardship, and respect for diversity all contribute to Irvine’s enviable quality of life. This family-friendly city features more than 16,000 acres of parks, sports fields and dedicated open space and is the home of Great Park. For more information, please visit cityofirvine.org.
