Rancho san rafael regional park

The park has an enchanting variety of facilities. Don't be fooled by the sagebrush and dusty trail on the north side of the park. There are mysteries to explore and discoveries to be made in the wetland habitat. The historic Ranch House is a beautiful way to add a touch of old west to any event. To learn more about the history of Rancho San Rafael, click here.

This park is also home to the Wilbur D. May Museum and Arboretum.
