The park has a big focus on all things horticultural, historical, and agricultural. Gilroy Gardens is California’s only horticultural theme park and offers each visitor a truly special experience.

Filled with lush California gardens, a variety of rides, and countless activities, this park is guaranteed to offer any family a special time together full of wonder.

Fun Rides And Activities For All

The theme park has over 40 rides for a variety of ages and thrills. There are kiddy rides, family rides, roller coasters, carousels, water rides and so much more! 

Some of the rides go right through the trees and have splendid views of nature.

The Gardens also offers paddle boating in lovely Coyote Lake. 

Two local favorites are the train ride, and a sky rail that both go through Gilroy Gardens, giving two different views of the magnificent park.

Water Oasis is a section of the park that is perfect for those warm summer days. You can enjoy the water slide, wading pools, and the infamous “Splash Bucket.”

Nearby the Oasis, there are 12 cabanas to enjoy laying back and relaxing in. 

After the kids are done playing in the water you and the family can even order lunch right in the cabanas!
