Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch

I love pumpkin patches! They are probably one of my favorite places in the world! So when the opening of Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch coincided with the arrival of autumn, I couldn't resist checking it out! Irvine Park Railroad is located in the foothills of North Tustin/Orange in Irvine Regional Park. It's only about 20 or so minutes from my house, but I had never made the trek out there.

The pumpkin patch was a little more kid-oriented than I would have liked, but it was still fun! It had a small (but adorable) train that goes around the park, a hay maze, carnival games, a few kid rides and activities, hay rides and even a pint-sized haunted house (that was pretty awesomely decorated and free)! Most of the rides and activities cost money (plus it was $5 to enter the park), but I was content just walking around and going in the little (free!) haunted house. I was ecstatic to see all the pretty pumpkins carted in and arranged for picking, too!

Here are some pics from the first day of fall at the pumpkin patch:

You can tell I am sooooo happy in this picture!

Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch Rules

 Cute little sugar pumpkins!

The little haunted house was actually decorated pretty
cool! And they had an awesome scarecrow driving
a wagon plus a skeleton cutout I could stick my head in!

 Frankenstein's monster in the haunted house

 Cute monster cut-outs! 

More pumpkins, plus my feet! Then my gleeful mug and 
a view of the park's lake

Thanks for the perfect kick-off to autumn, pumpkin patch!


  1. Looks like fun! Was the haunted house like something you'd find at a carnival? The Monster looks like he's from that era.

    1. Not quite...It was just a simple little walk-through a few rooms, but so adorable! I think this one was a little better decorated than most fair/carnival haunted houses.
