University Park

The village of University Park was originally designed to be the “district” for people who are connected to the UC Irvine campus. It is located adjacent to UC Irvine and the San Diego Freeway (I-405).

Development of University Park began in the mid-1960s, and was the second village developed by The Irvine Company.


Being an avid cyclist, I truly appreciate Irvine’s many beautiful, safe and off the street bike paths. The stretch that runs adjacent to Harvard across from the golf course is especially picturesque and fun to see the diversity with not only the bikers, but walkers, rollerbladers and even little ones on their big wheels and scooters.
