Great location in Riverside to spend afternoon walk with or without family, we had really nice time and learning about citrus fruits (till this time I only did know basic Orange, Lemon and Grapefruit) Not thinking about all different varieties of Citrus.

Quiet, beautiful views, great smells all around, and dog friendly! This was a very enjoyable afternoon hiking around orchards and learning about the history of citrus production in California! Loved it! I would love to go back and do a tasting tour!

The California Citrus State Historic Park is an interesting place to walk among orange orchards - to get a feel for what much of rural Southern California must have been like - before the suburbs engulfed them. Unfortunately, I picked a Thursday to visit the...More

Park was okay, beautiful orange trees, but not much to do because tours had ended for the day. Went to Visitor's Center and museum. Didn't stay long.
