Irvine Park Railroad’s Annual Pumpkin Patch

Fall is my favorite season!  During October and N0vember, my family and I like to make homemade pumpkin pies, go apple picking in Oak Glen, enjoy the fall foliage and take in the season’s best activities throughout Southern California.

One of my family’s favorite annual fall events is to visit The Irvine Park Railroad’s Annual Pumpkin Patch at The Irvine Regional Park in Orange.  Children and adults are invited to visit the pumpkin patch which is open daily at 10:00 am, beginning September 14 through October 31.  I especially enjoyed going to the pumpkin patch with my mom’s group when my children were younger.

Irvine Park Railroad’s Pumpkin Patch Activities

This year’s Pumpkin Patch activities include train rides, hay rides, panning for gold, a child-friendly haunted house, a hay maze, a moon bounce, pumpkin ring toss, carnival games, cookie decorating, John Deere tractor racers, face painting, picture stands, great food and a lot more.  The Pumpkin Patch also has thousands of pumpkins in all shapes and sizes to choose from.  And there are lots of great photo opportunities too!
