Get Involved - Become a Friend of the Orange County Great Park

Many communities will lose military bases; they should look at the example set by Orange County California and the closing of the Marine Corps Air Station at El Toro. The Navy received $600 million, the City of Irvine $400 million for Park infrastructure. Sold to a developer for homes and businesses, the majority of the land is set aside for public purposes including a large municipal park, the Orange County Great Park.

Next month, the Great Park Corporation will host public meetings during which Orange County residents will have the opportunity to view the seven design proposals for the Orange County Great Park.
