Discover the Tranquil Charm of Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park!

Last weekend, my boyfriend and I were on the hunt for a fun day trip in Carlsbad. While scrolling through social media, I stumbled upon a post about the Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park, and my interest was immediately piqued. So, we made it our destination for the day!

Upon arriving, we were greeted with the rich history of the park, and we learned that it was once the former ranch of actor Leo Carrillo, known for his role in the Western TV series “The Cisco Kid.” As we strolled through the park, we were blown away by the beautifully restored historic buildings, including the main house, barns, and chapel. The park is 27 acres in size and boasts a visitor center, gardens, and picnic spots – it has everything you need for a perfect day out! The pool area was a personal favorite of mine, but the whole park was so peaceful to walk through.

Since it rained so much the last few days in California, the plants and flowers were bursting with vibrant colors and looked even more stunning than usual.

If you want to learn more about the history of the ranch and its former owner, you can take a guided tour, which we didn’t do due to time. However, they go through about the ranch’s past and the legacy left behind by Leo Carrillo. The park also hosts a variety of events throughout the year, including weddings, art shows, and concerts. No wonder why it’s such a popular destination for both locals and tourists! We had such a great time exploring and learning about the park’s rich history – I highly recommend it!
