Deeded to Orange County by the Irvine Company in 1992, Peters Canyon Regional Park has, like other newly declared open-space areas, gained almost instant popularity among lovers of the outdoors. The park features the 55-acre Upper Peters Canyon Reservoir, several natural habitats (freshwater marsh, riparian woodland, grassland, and coastal sage scrub), and about 6 miles of trails. The shallow reservoir is not open to fishing, but birding is fine here.
