“Great Outdoor Space”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Great place to hike, picnic, play outdoors with children, or just read a book. Surrounded by orange groves this is also a wondeful place to take pictures. During the summer they have concerts in the park. Year round they have other activities such as bird watching. Great place to be outdoors.

“Very Interesting Park”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Even though the visitors center was closed when we visited we still enjoyed this park. I was there with my wife and one of my duaghters (she's 20) and my mom (75). We all enjoyed viewing all the different types of Citrus fruits and the lovely grounds. We would return again to visit the visitors center.

“Great little bit of history and relaxation”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Some say there was an admission charge, if so no one asked for any admission. The museum was quite informative with a nice intro film on the citrus history in cali. The guys working there were friendly, helpful and relaxed. No one else there really on this Saturday first day of December so pretty much had the place to ourselves. Worth the trip and fantastic prices on oranges down the road from a local seller.

“Great place to take out of state visitors!”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

It is historical, educational and it smells good. Pets on a leash are welcome. A nice visitor's center where one can get fresh orange juice. Great for hiking - nice trails, a few hills, but great views at the top. Well informed and friendly docents. Very convenient - don't have to drive for miles to get there. A nice respit from the busy, noisy world. One caveat, do not go when it is hot. Although there are many trees and lots of shade it is still hot!
