Fun time for all. Great treat for the kids. Make sure you stop for lunch at the Old Hamburger Factory on the grounds.

Kids love it, especially when the big(ger) engines are out on the tracks. When the trolley is the only option....meh...a glorified pony ride. Love the folks who work here and keep it running - great to see passionate people doing what they love.

This place is just cool. If you have kids you have to go. Great atmosphere, and a great park for a picnic.

Charming little park in the heart of Poway with a cute train ride for children. Top it off with a meal at The Hamburger Factory. Great breakfasts and lunches.

Get yourself aboard the train even if you forgot the kids or don't have any with you. A fun ride through a gorgeous setting of old trees and big spaces.

Kids really like the whole scene, but any day other than Saturday would be my advice. We had to wait for forty minutes.
