A Visit to the Leo Carrillo Historic Ranch Park in Carlsbad California 


Leo Carrillo Historic Ranch Park in Rancho Carrillo Carlsbad CALeo Carrillo Historic Ranch Park offers visitors a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a bit of history and beautiful lush grounds in the midst of a master planned community in Carlsbad CA.


The Leo Carrillo Historic Ranch Park is a small portion of the original 2300+ acre ranch owned by TV screen star Leo Carrillo, the majority of which is now the master planned community of Ranch Carrillo built earlier this decade a couple miles east of Palomar Airport Road.


A drive down the hill past the Ranch Carrillo Swim Center into this historic park is a visual treat, with original trees and plantings, wild peacocks, and a number of historic buildings including the original hacienda built by Carrillo as a place to escape from Hollywood.

Hi Jeff, I had never heard of this site before but it would be fun to take it in. I have a new Buyer for Carlsbad and soon we will be out looking for homes in  Carlsbad. I have to sell the old place first here in SD so it might be a while before I get there. I pulled up the site and saved it on my links bar with a star beside it so I am sure to get there.

Hi Jeff, I just have to tell you that your photos are so much nicer than their site photos. I think you inspire a visit  and I can't say the same for their site.
