Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park

Where fun grows on trees!

This year we’ll be celebrating our 20th season with the biggest and best birthday party ever…and you’re invited! Get your memberships now to enjoy the park all year long.

Rides and Attractions

Many of the rides throughout the park were inspired by the region’s agricultural and historic past—from the Mushroom Swing and Garlic Twirl to the Timber Twister and Quicksilver Express Mine Coaster. There are plenty of gentle rides too, like Bulgy the Goldfish and Balloon Flight, for the youngest kids to enjoy. Other favorites include the Illions Supreme Carousel, Bonfante Railroad, and South County Backroads.

At Water Oasis, kids get to splash and play—while grownups kick back and relax in comfy cabanas and Adirondack chairs. Pitch-n-Win features carnival-style games with fun prizes, while The Green Barn is a unique space where families can explore art and nature together. And you can even pilot a Duck or Swan Paddle Boat across Coyote Lake!

Gorgeous Gardens

Be sure to take a stroll through the park’s six unique gardens, including the serene Claudia’s Garden, the lush Camellia Garden, and the tropical Monarch Garden (housed inside a 60-foot-tall greenhouse).

Circus Trees

The world-famous Circus Trees were originally grafted and shaped by Axel Erlandson in the 1920s, then rescued and replanted by Michael Bonfante. Today, 19 of these incredible living sculptures—including the park’s iconic Basket Tree as well as others like the Arch Tree and the Four-Legged Giant—can be found throughout the park. Visit California named the Circus Trees one of the state’s “Hidden Gems.”
