Stay tuned and receive updates and discounts..


Costs $5.00 on weekends and $3.00 during the week. They do accept CC but  you’ll need cash inside for the pony rides so make sure you grab cash before you come – (otherwise they have an ATM inside for a fee) It’s also a dirt lot, so wear closed toed shoes and if you want to avoid the rush I would arrive at 9:30am on weekends. 



They do sell food here, but it’s not very good and mostly junk food! Bring snacks and water and eat before you come or when you leave!

Activities and Tickets

Horse rides are totally separate then other activity tickets! And I heard a lot of confusion and frustration from other parents since they bought a bunch of tickets and the horse area wouldn’t take them. So .. just note the horses are totally separate company and they are cash only!! All the other activities are mostly 1-2 tickets per person. And that can get pricey since tickets normally sell for $6.00 each! That’s why we like to go when they have special deals and events on. Or plan ahead and pick 1/2 activities. 

OC Zoo is open 7 days a week and the cost is only $2.00 per person. They also have cute toddler activities during the week with arts and crafts etc.

Farmers Market is every Tuesday starting at 9am! You can even bring your pups with you so long as they are on a leash and stay close by.

Do you like photography? This park is the perfect photo opp for Orange County outdoor shoots! Why? Because they have several areas with perfect shade and natural lighting with beautiful naturesque backdrops.  

Host a birthday party here! They offer Four Party Pavilions, located next to the train station, are available to rent throughout the year. The pavilions are ideal for a birthday party, family reunion, special occasion, or corporate event. The price is $275

They also offer a small discount for train rides if you have the party here and tickets are $4.00 per person instead of $6.00

Hi friends! It's me thatocmomlife AKA Megan. I'm here to share with you guys all of our favorite places to go and the things we love! I love to showcase fun things to do with kids in the area, beauty products, shopping deals, and our travel adventures! I am a California girl, born and raised. I am married to an amazing man who happens to be Australian. We have two beautiful kids that we like to raise with the American roots and the Aussie roots too! Everything I share here, I truly believe in and I am a stickler with only working with companies that I have personally tried and am comfortable sharing. This platform has given me the greatest gift, and that is to be able to work from home and raise my kids!
