Hours: 10 AM to 5 PM
16756 Moorpark St.
We have started construction here at the park to make some much needed repairs. For your safety, we have closed the main Moorpark entrance. You can enter on Moorpark from the small gate next to the Blacksmith shop or the gate on Ventura Boulevard. During this time, the Garnier building Visitor's Center will be closed. The adobe will be available for tours and the rest of the park, to include the duck pond, will be open.
Los Encinos State Historic Park is a treasure trove of history from the days before California became a state. School field trips are encouraged and they are free.
See how it was in the early days... As it was then, it still is now.
This video explains our School Field Trip program.
The Visitors' Center in the Garnier Building is open for self-guided tours during regular park hours.
The newly-refurbished De la Ossa Adobe is available for free guided tours by appointment only or during some special events. Thank you for your patience as we deal with reduced staff.
School tours are available, please contact us to set up a time.(LosEncinos@parks.ca.gov )
The park is closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and most state/national holidays.
You may enter the park via the Moorpark Street gate or the Ventura Boulevard gate. Both are open during regular park hours.
Hours are 10 AM to 5 PM. Admission is free, but donations are encouraged.
Duck food is provided for a voluntary donation of 25 cents a bag. You are strongly discouraged from bringing bread as the ducks and geese can't properly digest the highly refined grains that people eat.
We have no parking lot. Please park on the street and pay close attention to posted signs. The lot at the corner of Ventura and Balboa is for the businesses in that area.
