“Lovely little garden and ranch houses”

Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park
Ranked #6 of 77 things to do in Carlsbad
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

The ranch ground was full of peacocks and everything was in bloom. The visitor center has a short movie about Leo Cabrillo and the ranch’s history. The house is open, I loved the horse bedroom. The pool and gardens are very pretty. It was a nice hour we spent there for the kids too.

Interesting historical site that has been well-maintained. Get a map at the visitors’ center so you know what building you are looking at. Nice place for a walk and the peacocks are a plus.

Never knew this place existed. Free to enter and has a free guided tour. Place has several dozen peacocks walking around. Very enjoyable educational tour.

Leo Carrillo Ranch is a great little-hidden gem within the community of Carlsbad. This historic park is preserved and maintained by the city and they have construction going on for a new visitor area that will be completed soon. This is a great historic visit that not many locals even know. It is great to walk through the original buildings and the pool. It is also a great setting for a wedding or a small gathering. The staff are very friendly and have great knowledge to tell the history of the family and the property.

Very interesting place with an old hacienda and lovely grounds around which to stroll. Watch the short (15 min. or so) video to learn all about the original property owners as well as Leo Carrillo the actor known as the Cisco Kid. Imagine all the Hollywood stars retreating from Los Angeles to enjoy nature on this lovely site. Look for the beautiful peacocks strolling the grounds, so colorful and regal. We even saw an all-white peacock as well!
