Did some volunteering landscaping work here, and there was a massive lot to do. Looked better after I finished the project. Much to do, lots of land to do walk-about (watch out for poison ivy in the outskirts). Shady sit downs, sunday and spring/summer/fall picnics,...More

Watch for their schedule of events. We went on a berry picking day and our Granddaughter had a blast. We ride the train, checked out some animals and toured the mansion. A day full of memories to be sure. Our visit was last year and...More

Gave my daughter and her family a membership, and they come often, at least every week. The 7 year old and 4 year old are able to look at everything and mom with the 1 year old doesn't have to panic. It is all fenced....More

Historic landmark, great for multi-generational families, paved walkways, free parking, and see how a working farm operates. Best to go in the morning before it gets hot. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen. Special events throughout the year. Check the East Bay Regional Park District...More

We came here on Christmas Eve at around 3pm as they were about to feed animals. Tickets are super cheap at $3 per person! We walked around the property and had fun feeding the chickens, goats and sheep. At the end of the feeding, the...More

There are formal gardens, large lawns, farm animals and butterflies. This park has more scheduled events than any other East Bay Regional Park - most events are suitable for kids. And they have a train here too.

Ardenwood Farm is a great place to get local produce. Buying from them helps local farming instead of paying for stuff to be trucked in from another country or state. In October this farm becomes a pumpkin patch with a bunch of stuff for the...More

This place is a gem and I've been taking my daughter here since she could barely walk. A working historic farm, educational seminars, peacocks running around, bunnies, goats, cows, a blacksmith, Ohlone history, and more are some of the things you can do here. Take...More
