Community Spaces

Beacon Park

Beacon Park is the heart of the community. A six acre park offering unique play structures, open space, and places to connect with friends and family. Located at 501 Benchmark, you can’t miss The Lookout – the pride of the neighborhood – a towering tree house that stands with the huge shade trees, providing opportunities for kids to play, pretend to be explorers, embark on imaginative adventures, and have fun. The modern designs blend with the natural elements creating a unique and exciting space. Faux logs provide stepping stones or something to leap from and giant net obstacles in a variety of structures give junior adventurers something to hone their climbing skills on. Beacon Park also has a Bocce Court and an outdoor kitchen complete with a tandoori oven. You’ll also find Beacon Park pool here, with a pool and spa for residents to relax and enjoy the cool water on warm days.

The Arts House

The Arts House is a great place for the community to enjoy a variety of classes including art, and will also feature art exhibits and special speakers during community events.

Pedestrian Bridge

The pedestrian bridge crosses over Irvine Boulevard connecting Beacon Park neighborhood to the Pavilion Park neighborhood allowing residents and visitors a safe path to travel from one side of the community to the other. The pedestrian bridge provides children easy access to the Beacon Park School, keeping kids in the community away from the busy main boulevards, and allows families to travel between neighborhoods to enjoy the community events.

The Pools

Beacon Park is one of four community pool areas located in the Great Park Neighborhoods. The Beacon Park pool offers plenty of seating, a pool, and spa. In addition to the Beacon community pool, the neighborhood is just steps away from The Pools, a water park in the Great Park Neighborhoods. The 8-acre park features a junior Olympic pool, a family pool, a children’s pool, and three spas. The Pools also features an outdoor fitness area, a sand volleyball court, a children’s play area, a great lawn, and a clubhouse with an outdoor kitchen.

The Schools

The Great Park Neighborhoods are part of the Irvine Unified School District. Beacon Park School, K-8 is right across from Beacon Park.
