At the Park’s Visitor’s Center, you can walk through the museum to learn the expansive history of how citrus groves came about and concentrated in Southern California. The main continuous counties were: Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Ventura.
As you explore the Orientation Center, you’ll follow citrus from its earliest origins in Asia to its centuries long journey to North America. You’ll also begin to understand why people once followed and still follow their dreams to the Golden State. And how for some folks, these widely divergent dreams sometimes actually come true. It’s an exciting journey.
We hope you’ll enjoy it and that you’ll come back soon!
