I was a docent at this park for three years. It appeals to everyone on some level. When my child was small, he ran up and down the hill. As he got older, he took school tours of the varietal grove and learned about the different forms of citrus. Today, as a teen, he can tell you about the citrus history in Riverside County and California in general.
It's a great place in the spring when the trees are full of blossoms. It worth it just to go for the senses overload. It is a favorite place in the spring for wedding in the gazebo. The park is setup to look like a park would have in the early 1900. No play equipment but an enormous lawn space for kids to run and play.
We were there when they built the new museum. It starts with the first orange from China and runs through the heyday of the orange history in Riverside which had the largest per capita income in the United States in 1900.
We do Easter Egg hunts there and go to the summer concerts held on the lawn. Again, I might be a little prejudice but it is one of my favorite California State Parks.
