Pictures of Leo Carrillo Ranch

Art PrintsLeo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park is located in Carlsbad California and was once home to the actor Leo Carrillo. It is a 27 acre well manicured location that has been restored to its original beauty. One can find various plant life, flowers, old fashion buildings, and much more that represents the early settlers and history of California.  You will not want to miss the peacocks and groove on the property.

Leo Carrillo was from a long line of California notables. He was an actor and civil servant that spent a great many years doing both.  Born in 1881 and died in 1961 he spent a great amount of time as a conservationist that tried to protect the land. He was part of the California Beach and Parks Commission.

It is open most days of the week and is free for visitors. Free does not mean that it is not in need of funds, donations, and support. You may want to view and contact the Friends of Carillo organization to see how you may help at their website or the City of Carlsbad website.
