Description

California Citrus State Historic Park preserves some of the rapidly vanishing cultural landscape of the citrus industry, and tells the story of this industry's role in the history and development of California.

In the early 1900s, an effort to promote citrus ranching in the state brought hundreds of would-be citrus barons to California for the "second Gold Rush." The lush groves of oranges, lemons and grapefruit gave California another legacy - its lingering image as the Golden State - the land of sunshine and opportunity.

The design of the park is reminiscent of a 1900s city park, complete with an activity center, interpretive structure, amphitheater, picnic area and demonstration groves. The land contained within the park still continues to produce high-quality fruits.
