The County of Orange, OC Parks is in the process of creating a Master Plan for Mile Square Regional Park, which will include the plan and design of the 93-acre expansion to the regional park. This process will provide opportunities for public input during several phases of design and development. 

The work includes research, design, public presentation, master planning, environmental review, and construction. Click on this link to view the details of the four phases of the planning and design process. 

The process is currently in Phase 3, which includes a public EIR Scoping Meeting on September 10. The next step will be to finalize the design with consideration of the feedback from the public. A final design and Master Plan for Mile Square Regional Park will be released in winter of 2021.
