Visitors to the park’s new Visitor Center, built as a replica of a packinghouse, will enjoy the same panoramic view, gardens, citrus groves, and palm-lined avenues that the wealthy growers enjoyed. Park guests may also explore various paths from the Visitor Center up on the knolls to vistas of a breathtaking view of the entire 377-acre park.
Inside the replicated citrus packinghouse are exhibits showing the citrus story as it traveled from Asia to Riverside. Also inside is the Visitor Information area and Eliza’s Emporium Gift Shop that sells citrus related merchandise from marmalade and candy to books, t-shirts and kitchen items. Outside, at the nearby fountain, is a replica of the 1908 Sunkist ad with a bronze statue featuring a California girl giving an orange to a boy from Iowa.
