Summer is right around the corner, and it’s time to come up with some fun activities to keep everyone entertained. Here’s a free activity that you’ll love. Check it out!
The California Citrus State Historic Park is located at 9400 Dufferin Avenue in Riverside.
The park is open seven days a week. Visit Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm; Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm.
The park's goal is to educate the public about California's citrus-growing history, and preserve a little bit of the citrus landscape that's quickly disappearing in our state.
Go on a guided "Taste and Tour" of the citrus grove. The tours are available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 am, noon and 2:00 pm.
Special "Groves on Wheels" tours accommodate wheelchairs and strollers. Those tours are offered every third Saturday of the month at 10:30 am.
You'll get to see lots of different citrus trees growing here.
Volunteer docents give presentations...
...and you can try some free samples!
The Museum/Visitor Center is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Displays at the museum show you the different kinds of citrus grown here in California. Did you know there were so many varieties?
You'll also learn a lot about California's citrus history, and how the state once relied heavily on citrus production.
The grounds here are beautiful!
You can even buy some oranges and other citrus fruit here if you'd like.

website for more information and to see what events are coming up.
