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 the 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 the historic garden and orchard? If the close relationship between California State Parks and Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks can bring this jewel from the rancho past back to life, anything’s possible with a bit of love!

Free admission (donations gratefully accepted). Limited parking (carpooling encouraged). Active construction site, open only during scheduled events like this. Event made possible by Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks and California State Parks.
