Leo Carrillo Ranch

4th Grade School Education Program

The California History & Art Program is an amazing, free outdoor field trip that ignites children’s imaginations and teaches them about the people who lived on this beautiful Carlsbad property: Luiseño Indians, homesteaders of European descent and a Hollywood star recreating a Spanish hacienda and ranch.  Recently, we added the renovated Stable with hands-on experiences to help the students understand ranch life. The students create a wonderful piece of art that reinforces the lesson they have learned.  The interactive art class is taught by the City of Carlsbad Library & Cultural Arts Department. In addition, students grind corn and make tortillas to complete their ranch experience.


Leo Carrillo is a beautifully landscaped and maintained xeriscape grounds. The Parks Department is seeking assistance with basic weeding, trimming, tidying and occasional planting to sustain the park grounds.
