I live only blocks from here. On Saturday you can shop the farmer's market,with wonderful smells of coffee,flowers,bread, and different foods cooking as you walk through. It's also pet friendly. There are small shops you can walk through,with a Western theme. The park has a Old Western Steam Train that all the children absolutely love. It's great for picnics and... More

I liked the charm and the History of the park and also the train that takes you around the park. It's also a great place for picnics and birthday parties.

This is truly a family place. You have the farmer's market on Saturday, and the craft fairs, plus Hamburger Mary and the train and old buildings. What more could you want

We stayed one night in Poway since we couldn't get into our San Diego condo until the following night. Had a great meal at the local burger joint, walked around a quaint little park, met a man who had a high-powered telescope set up. He was letting the public use it to look at Saturn - a very cool experience.... More

Hidden deep in the southern part of Poway is a wonderful oasis of nature. Old Poway Park not only has a natural wooded beauty, but it also is a great venue for a special occasion. Many of the buildings can be rented out by the hour for your celebrations. We rented the Templars' Hall for a 50 person gathering and... More

Depending on when you want to visit, Old Poway Park can be a serene, comfortable place to picnic, bar-b-que, let the kids run around on the grass and climb trees, buy unique items at the regularly-scheduled craft fairs, or enjoy a variety of music presentations at the huge gazebo. Weekends there are rides on the train. The museum is also... More

We live in Poway. Poway residents and visitors are very lucky to have such an attractive and historical park, restaurants and shops in an old fashioned setting. Poway is a very family-friendly town which makes the Old Poway Park an excellent place to attend holiday events all year long. The park has beautiful old oaks which shade the large picnic... More

Leisurely and comfortable setting for a little walk or picnic; railroad memorabilia there and a local history museum behind the Hamburger Factory restaurant.
