"Leo Carrillo Ranch is a designated Historic National Landmark that was opened to the public in August 2003. It is connected to the citywide trails system via the 4-mile long Rancho Carrillo trail.

Discover the history and tranquil beauty of this former working ranchero, once owned by actor Leo Carrillo. Secluded in the heart of a magnificently landscaped 27-acre canyon, this historic park contains and protects romantic hand-crafted adobe buildings, antique windmills, a reflecting pool and many other beautiful historic structures where visitors can explore and experience California history. Nature-lovers delight in gorgeous agave, bougainvillea, Birds of Paradise, plentiful trees and the company of dozens of brilliant peacocks who call the ranch home. Learn about the unique entry gate created specifically for the park through the city's public art program."

 

Personal Experience: We spent about 1 1/2 hours here exploring.  What I really loved about this place is that it wasn't too busy and although there were volunteer tour guides, we were given complete free-range to explore on our own.  There are dozens of peacocks here including one white peacock and a ton of babies.  They definitely add to the experience.  It was a lot of fun looking in the old homes and rooms.  I reccommend having one of the tour guides walk you around a little so you learn a bit about the houses you're exploring.  And make sure to give a little donation.  This place is completely maintained and run by volunteers.  Let's help keep this place around!
