I drive by often but never thought anything about this place other than a place to walk jog or bike. I was invited to a tour and I decided to go even though my first thought was "how boring". It was GREAT! They have a really neat store with everything citrus, a little museum and they even let you taste... More

I used to live by the park and had never visited until I was honored to be chosen to speak at a retirement dinner for a colleague. I knew it was a nice place to drive by but had no idea how large and picturesque the place is. I took my wife around, without a tour and walked through the... More

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...
