This little park in a corner of Riverside commemorates the California citrus industry, which has become far less noticeable as homes and development have ploughed under the Orange groves that once covered Southern California. The par visitor center shows the history of the industry and also offers free tastings of different types of citrus. The grounds have examples of these citrus plants to see. There is a $5 parking fee but otherwise it’s free to visit everything.

We went there for photos and then ended up wandering around. The park is a beautiful place to visit. All of the volunteers were very knowledgeable.

This citrus park gives you a personable guide who walks you right up to many varieties of oranges and other citrus fruits. Historical insights as you pick fruits for free to take home with you! Wonderful experience!
