Valle Lindo Park, Ventura California

Description

Valle Lindo Park takes you by surprise. In a nondescript, flat neighborhood, you come across a beautiful park filled with redwood trees, leafy deciduous trees, little hills, bridges, and pretty winding paths. There is a grassy amphitheater with a nice feel to it. There are tennis courts and best of all, a large new playground. The playground has some interesting structures that you don't find at other playgrounds. This is a popular park on weekends. Come and enjoy its beauty!
Places to See Nearby
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.
It's also interesting to drive around and check out the Camarillo mansions in the Crestview and Spanish Hills area.
For a fun place to take kids to learn about World War II aviation history, head over to Camarillo Airport and the aviation museum.
