Leo Carrillo Ranch – California’s Golden Parks (156)
Once owned by famous Hollywood move star Leo Carrillo, Los Quiotes is a 27 acre historic park in the lovely town of Carlsbad. It contains and protects many of the original historic structures and outbuildings associated with Leo Carrillo’s use of the ranch. This ranch was Leo’s way to escape the hustle and bustle of Hollywood and a place for he and his wife to “get away”. This beautiful ranch eventually fell off the radar and was almost lost forever, until a group of concerned citizens stepped in. Now a historic park, the ranch is filled with early California history and even a couple of peacocks.
