  • The ranch is not too big and you can walk through it easily. The best part is looking for the peacocks. It's a hidden gem in Carlsbad.  more »

  • Such a beautiful place for a walk and of course check out the peafowl. I was pleased to learn that guided walking tours are offered. Beautiful place for photos...just make sure to check in at the front before snapping away. Great, relaxing place for a stroll, and it's free ! We were advised to come on cooler parts of the day as that's when the peafowl like to come out . There didn't seem to be a lot at first, but just as we were about to leave , they seemed to pop out from everywhere...so rest assured they're definitely hanging around there !
  • It's a beautiful park with an old world feel smack in the middle of suburbia. It's really just an old ranch, with a house, a pool house, and some very pretty gardens and lots of succulents and cactai. We took family pictures there that turned out beautifully, and took our kids to a Christian tree lighting which was Such a great event to bring our little ones. The only issue that I have with this place is that they normally close at 5pm. Not only that, but they start kicking people out well before, and I'm sure it's not all of them, but two so far have been a bit rude about us leaving quickly enough even at 4:45. To be fair all other volunteers and employees have been very courteous and cheery.
  • Awesome historical experience !!! Thank you, City of Carlsbad, CA, for your caring of this free to public park. So glad I didn't miss it during my return visit from SW Colorado. (Lived in SD County 34 years - never knew about the ranch...too busy - family, work, sailing, etc....). ***** ✓
  • Historic, friendly and knowledgeable docents. Great place for a walk or run. Take the kids. Be on the lookout for peacocks!
  • Beautiful place to slow down and connect with nature. It's a true gift and we are grateful to have the chance to enjoy picnic lunches and walks while being serenaded by the peacocks.
