Yorba Regional Park is a 140-acre linear park located adjacent to the Santa Ana River. It is an official Orange County bicentennial project steeped with history that opened in 1976. There are more than 400 picnic tables situated in the park, four lakes, bike trails, volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, two ball diamonds, a physical fitness course, and playgrounds complete with restrooms.
Yorba Regional Park land was once part of a large cattle ranching operation owned by Bernardo Yorba. There were also sheep, mules, oxen, and horses, as well as grape vines and crops including corn, wheat, beans, and pumpkin. An adobe that once stood here was demolished in 1926.
