So it looks like the new Tustin park at Jamboree & Portola is complete. We are just waiting for the grand opening. Here are some photos from the Tustin City website...

Here is the OC Register article about the new park from October 2009:

Citrus Ranch Park nears completion By ELYSSE JAMES
2009-09-17 16:31:41

TUSTIN Citrus Ranch Park, the last park to be built in Tustin Ranch, is expected to open in January.

The $4.4 million park will be closed to the public for a few months after its expected completion in November to give the landscaping time to establish, said David Wilson, director of Parks and Recreation.

The 17-acre park at 1111 Portola Parkway has a citrus theme, and rows of nearly 1,000 lemon trees will line the topmost part of Citrus Ranch Park. The groves are among the last citrus groves in Orange County. A shaded, seated lookout point at the top of the hill will give visitors a panoramic view of the city.

The groves had 1,100 lemon tress but the city had to remove about 100 trees for construction access and because some were too diseased to save.

Residents won't be able to pick the lemons because the city is concerned about injuries on the irrigation lines and damage to the watering system. But the city is considering opening the groves up for public picking on certain days, and possibly having the fruit harvested and donated, Wilson said.

The city also is considering an annual day to celebrate the harvest, said Lisa Woolery, city spokeswoman. The park also will have a weather station, which will predict weather and help the city determine how much to water the plants.

A meadow has picnic spaces for barbecuing and sports. The park will have 96 parking spaces, two walk-in entrances off Jamboree Road and one at Tustin Ranch Road. Construction began in December.

A trail leads visitors past the two playgrounds and through the lemon groves to Vista View Point, the 235-foot lookout at Jamboree Road and Portola Parkway. From the lookout, visitors will have a view of the mountains, the county and on a clear day, Catalina Island and the ocean. The park is off Portola Parkway, between Jamboree and Tustin Ranch roads.

In addition to the viewing area, the park has a meadow, picnic tables, walkways, restrooms and two play areas, a tot lot for children ages 2 to 5 and a playground for children ages 5 to 12.

After Citrus Ranch is complete, the next park the city will build is a 25-acre sports park in Tustin Legacy at the former Marine base.

I just drove by the park today and saw a banner saying it will open in February (I think it said "mid to late" February.)

The pictures look really good.

Very exciting--the park is looking great. My son will love playing in that big tot lot.

I imagine they will open the park before the official grand opening. If other posters could let me know when they take down the fences that would be great. Like any good TI member I like to get the insiders preview before the crowds come.   ;D

Hey, guys. Why don't we make a "Talk Irvine Parent & Me Playdate" out of it. Cubic, Ck, IHO, IACRenter, Kayochan, RC, traceimage, etc. etc...?? We could do it that day or like IAC says, after that day (I don't know if it it's open before) when it's not as crowded.

Big kids are welcome too.  Just don't complain if I can't push you on the swing as high in the air as the smaller kids.   ;)
