Turtle Rock Nature Center

Temporarily Closed
Saturday, February 27
Free Admissions
1 Sunnyhill Irvine, California 92603
Suitable for ages 1 to 17


Visitors can explore the Nature Center at their leisure, taking a self-guided trail walk during regular operating hours. Please be advised that the trail may occasionally be closed due to inclement weather. Nature Trail Winding through the nature preserve is a paved trail which displays native Southern Californian habitats, including Riparian, Desert, and Woodlands. Frequent visitors to our nature preserve trail include local birds who enjoy swimming in our pond, lizards who bask in the sun on our rocks and rabbits who disappear into the desert brush. Native Plant Garden Designed and completed by Eagle Scout Nathaniel Pinckney, the native plant garden features some common plant species that are native to Orange County. Visit the garden for a chance to learn about the importance of local plant species and to get information on how to plant natives in your own back yard. Labyrinth There are as many ways to walk the labyrinth as there are individuals. It represents our passage through time and experience. Like the journey of life, no time or effort is wasted. Every step takes us closer to our goal. The labyrinth was designed and completed by Eagle Scout Michael Nakahara, Troop 606.
