Life in California before the Gold Rush wasn’t all-Zorro, all-the-time, but it did have its share of romantic charm and excitement. Step into the Pájaro Valley’s past with this sneak peek into our future state park. Bring your sweetheart, or meet somebody over traditional hot chocolate in our Mexican-era adobe’s restored kitchen; we’ll provide the fire, you bring the “spark.” Who knows what may blossom while you stroll through our historic garden and orchard? If the close relationship between California State Parks and Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks can bring this jewel from our rancho past back to life, anything’s possible with a bit of love! Active construction site, open only during scheduled events. Free event. Limited parking; carpooling encouraged. For more information, call (831) 226-9669.
