AAA Editor Notes
Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park is w. on SR 152 (Hecker Pass Hwy. W.) to just past Burchell Rd., following signs. This 28-acre theme park is centered around trees and horticulture but also has more than 40 rides, gardens and attractions geared to families with young children. For kids there are several roller coasters, a monorail, a rock maze, a 1927 carousel, antique car rides, a water play area and pitch-and-win games. Be sure to check out the “circus trees,” topiaries that have been grafted together to form interesting shapes.
Food is available.
