Parking: Free parking is available at the Rancho on normal operating days.
Accessibility: The majority of the site is accessible by wheelchair including the Rancho Center and exhibits, the Barns area with livestock and the Gift Shop. Because this is an historic site, some of the old pathways in the gardens may not be able to hold a heavy motorized chair and some paths are extremely narrow. However, there is a wide asphalt drive that borders the gardens and most areas may be viewed from the drive.
Dress: We suggest you wear comfortable clothing and low-heeled shoes, which help protect the historic floors of the ranch house and make walking in the gardens more enjoyable.
Smoking: Smoking is only allowed in the parking lot area.
Pets: Please leave little Fido at home. Only certified service animals are permitted on the premises.
Restrooms: There are handicap-accessible restroom facilities on site.
