Irvine Lake

A man-made lake surrounded by hills just outside the hustle and bustle of city life. This is a great spot if you're looking to get away from the city without having to drive far. While it's not really a place to go hiking, it's the type of place where you park and fish or walk around the lake and take in the peaceful sounds and sights of nature. This has recently been taken over by OC Parks and the fee for parking here is $5. Some notable animals that can be spotted here are mountain lions, bobcats, bald eagles, golden eagles, coyotes, peregrine falcons, and ospreys
