This is a great place to hike among varieties of citrus trees. Along the trails, there are signs and boards which offer information about the citrus industry and the different citrus varieties. It's best to come on Saturdays,Sundays, and Wednesdays, when the Visitor Center and Museum are open (10am -4pm). The facilities include picnic areas and can accommodate weddings. Check... More

Learn of the Riverside history and buy good quality cheap costing oranges. Always stop by and pick up a bag when I drive by, a must when in Riverside.

Very well maintained. I would recommend for a stroll for a few hours. No fee to get in. Nice place. The guides were very friendly. We got to eat some juicy oranges too.

We came on Memorial day in the morning and it was not crowded at all. The morning tour was great since the sun was not too bright. Highly recommended to go on the guided tour that explores the orange grove and talks about Riverside's Citrus history. Riverside's booming orange groves, innovative irrigation, and advanced packing and shipping methods created the... More

We took a tour and were taken into the orchards to taste the different varieties of fruit. It was very cool. I learned so much. It was lots of fun.

If you like citrus fruit, this is a mandatory stop. There's the expected museum and gift shop, but the highlight was the citrus tour. You and a small group of people walk through the very large orchard. The guide tells you about the different types of citrus, and picks and passes around samples of various fruits. I had no idea...

This is a hidden gem in Riverside. We took the 2 p.m. tour and must have eaten 20 different varieties of lemons, oranges, grapefruits, and kumquats. The fruit was juicy and flavorful, and our tour guide Joe was a wealth of information about the citrus varieties. We also were able to pick two bags of citrus to take home. You... More

Some parks are all about nature, others are all about sports. This is a peaceful example of a working citrus grove, with a few facilities for picnics and weddings, but it's really about seeing many kinds of fruit trees in cultivation. It's a sunny, lovely place with an encompassing view of the valley, and a window to the past of... More

We had been planning to visit here for years and finally had the chance today. Very happy we did! The Park far exceeded our expectations. Be sure to make time to join a walking tour through the citrus grove or you will miss out on a very special experience. As a long-time Riverside resident, I was amazed at the many... More
