The Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park is a great place to explore an old ranchero, hike, smell the flowers and see old architecture. And it’s all located within the famous actor, Leo Carrillo’s, old estate.

Designated as a Historic National Landmark, the Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park is an amazing 27-acre park with a formerly working ranchero, trails, adobe buildings, antique windmills, great gardens, wildlife, a reflection pool and limitless possibilities. It was once owned by the famous actor, Leo Carrillo, who appeared in more than 90 films over his career. It was opened to the public in 2003 and even has an entry gate created through the city’s public art program. The very first issue of Western Ranch Houses featured a photo of the Carrillo stable complex in 1958. It’s a great outdoor area to enjoy.
The actual ranch is open primarily during the tours (see below) but the estate is open for exploring.
