The City of Irvine invites the community to share input on the renovation of Bommer Canyon Cattle Camp at a public workshop Wednesday, April 25, 6-7:30 p.m., at the Las Lomas Community Center.
The Bommer Canyon Community Park Rehabilitation Project focuses on refreshing the former Cattle Camp, originally built in 1967. The 15-acre rustic site is a popular setting for parties, company picnics, weddings, family reunions and camp-outs.
The public workshop seeks to gather community input on desired features and ideas for the renovated site. Input gathered will be used to enhance a draft park design for City review this summer.
For those unable to attend the workshop, project information and an online survey will be available at cityofirvine.org after the workshop. Las Lomas Community Center is located at 10 Federation Way, Irvine 92603.
The workshop and parking are free.
Nestled in the heart of Bommer Canyon is part of the old Irvine Ranch Cattle Camp. Several of the original structures exist today, adding to the rustic feel of the Canyon. Bommer Canyon Community Park is also an important preservation area for many local plants and wildlife, including several endangered species. The cattle camp area is available for rental. View a map and directions here.
Trails are open for hiking, mountain biking and horse-back riding. Please note that only some trails are open to the public for self-guided daily access while others are restricted to docent-led activities due to sensitive habitat. Dogs are not permitted on trails in Bommer Canyon, but they are permitted on the Quail Hill Loop Trail. Please see trail map here.
