2017 Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch


Fall in Orange County means the Irvine Park Railroad transforms into its annual Pumpkin Patch – featuring thousands of pumpkins in all shapes and sizes! The 12th Annual Pumpkin Patch is open daily at 10:00 am September 16th through October 31st. Irvine Park Railroad is tucked back into the foothills of Orange, California and is a beautiful (and fun!) place to spend an afternoon with the family.

This year’s activities include:

  • train rides
  • hay rides
  • panning for gold
  • child friendly haunted house
  • hay maze
  • moon bounce
  • carnival games
  • cookie decorating
  • John Deere tractor races
  • face painting
  • picture stands
  • yummy food!


Admission to the Pumpkin Patch is FREE and prices for the other activities vary. You can find out more about pricing by visiting the Irvine Park Railroad website. The parking for Irvine Regional Park is $3.00 per vehicle on weekdays and $5.00 per vehicle on weekends.


We always have a great time at the Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch. The kids start asking in August when it will be time to get their faces painted and pick out the perfect pumpkin from the plethora of pumpkins! JT especially enjoys the “haunted house” and Isabella loves the face painting. Grace was crazy for the cookie decorating! I love all the giant pumpkins and the hay ride – such a great Fall activity!
