On Saturday, January 21 we celebrated the grand opening of our newest neighborhood, Parasol Park. If you made it to one of our grand opening celebrations (yes, we had two!), we hope you had as much fun as we did. (See if you can spot yourself in one of the pictures from the event.) If you couldn't make it, come out and visit us any time. And feel the energy of our newest neighborhood built with an urban vibe that connects to your neighbor's and nature.
It's the equivalent of a warm fire and mug of cocoa for your ears. Our cozily curated winter playlist will make you feel all warm inside. (Even if where you live is technically still warm outside.)
Feeling artsy (or craftsy)? Join us at the Arts House at Beacon Park for classes lead by The Makery Craft, Co. With creative projects that range from beginning sewing to handmade gifts, there is something for everyone. The one thing they have in common? They’re super fun and in the neighborhood.
Feel like some blasts from the past? Listen to these goodies from the BB era (Or, if you’d rather, “Before Bieber.”)
Relive our Friday Night Happenings, with these selections from the bands who performed. Didn’t attend any FNH events? Well, this is a good chance to hear what you missed.
Friday Night Happenings are in full swing at Great Park Neighborhoods and its quickly becoming the place to be in Irvine. Every third Friday night each month through September, Beacon Park is transformed into a gathering place bringing together neighbors, family and friends for a casual night of fun.
Our favorite on-call chef (and cooking teacher) Patty Gamboa of Working Woman's Food is at it again, giving us an out-of-this-world cupcake recipe. Make her amazing Strawberry Cupcakes with Pink Lady Buttercream, for any spring occasion.
With the weather feeling more akin to summer than winter, Saturday afternoon was a picture-perfect day for the third annual Lunar New Year celebration at Beacon Park of Great Park Neighborhoods. Doubling the attendance from last year’s event, more than 2,500 people danced to live music, used their imagination with arts and crafts, and supported local artisan fairs at the night market. The pounding drums of joy were accompanied by joyful cheers and laughter by adults and children alike – all enjoying the one-of-a-kind traditional lion dance in the park.
