Eldred Lokker Park, Ventura California

Description

Eldred Lokker Park (formerly Fresas Park) has a nice feel to it. The hills that surround it are very pretty. Cookie cutter houses abound but its an established neighborhood with lovely trees. The park itself has flowering trees situated next to benches onlooking the play area. The two playgrounds are older but well-kept. The toddler playground is a ship and there is a cute pacman-style bouncy and a twisty slide. The big kids playground is large, with a ton of things to do plus a tire swing. There are basketball courts and a sand volleyball area. Take in the views of the mountains to the southeast and the colorful hills to the north.
Old Town Camarillo, which has been revitalized recently, has a cool European-style cafe with super good food, Panini Place, plus stylish Element Coffee where you can hang out with free wifi. A walk around the old town to beautiful St. Mary Magdalen Church is really pleasant.
Camarillo Ranch House, where Adolfo Camarillo lived, is one of the nicest Victorian houses I've seen- it's well worth visiting and you can learn more about the area from the great tour guides. Valle Lindo Park is a large park filled with redwoods, bridges, winding paths, and play equipment- a pleasant place for a walk or to stop with your kids.
