History[edit]

Orange Park Acres canyon/panoramic view

Orange Park Acres was founded in 1928 as the official equestrian destination of Orange County.[according to whom?] Much of that historical heritage can be observed through the lack of sidewalks and street lights in many areas, as well as the abundance of fenced horse trails.

The community was placed under mandatory evacuation during the Windy Ridge fire in 2007, a blaze that scorched the unincorporated areas surrounding Anaheim Hills and Orange Park Acres. In total, the blaze damaged 2,036 acres (824 ha)

and resulted in the scorching of over half the Weir Canyon Regional Park, as well as the evacuation of several homes in both Orange Park Acres and Anaheim Hills.[citation needed]
