Gilroy Gardens

California Theme Park

By

In brief
Part botanical gardens, part amusement park, Gilroy Gardens eschews high-adrenaline thrill rides and high-profile themed attractions for a simpler, laid-back experience. The trees and grounds are beautiful and the park is a lovely place to commune with nature. The rides are geared to the younger set.
