The park is located near Tustin and Irvine, CA, in Orange County.
The land was part of a Spanish land grant, Rancho Lomas de Santiago. In 1897, the rancho was purchased by James Irvine, who leased out the canyon to several farmers, including James Peters, who farmed in the upper part of the canyon. To support Irvine Ranch's water needs the upper reservoir was completed in 1931 and the lower one in 1940. Both were used to regulate the Irvine Company's water supply draft from Santiago Reservoir, known today as Irvine Lake.
