  • Trip Report Gilroy Gardens great place for Toddlers

    Hello MiceChatter- We were in San Jose this past weekend, On Sunday we had a few hours to kill before making the drive back to Long Beach so we planned to check out Gilroy Gardens. In our little group was my daughter 3 1/2, my son 17 months and their twin cousins who are 2 1/2. This was our first trip to Gilroy Gardens but my kids are seasoned vets of Disneyland having gone many, many times. Unlike their cousins who have never been to an amusement park. This was a test for them to see if they could handle a Disneyland trip this up coming October. Here are some photos



    The entrance was suprisingly pretty






    My wife pointing out if this were DL imagine alot more people


    My Daughter knows how theme Maps work so she led the way


    Her Cousin was a bit unsure but he followed along


    Pretty flowers abound


    Carousel spotted




    But the strawberry ride looked more enticing so we rode that first


    Now back to the carousel




    Goldfish ride was next!!








    Firetrucks were next


    Of course the sisters drove




    Time for some Solo driving








    Balloon ride time...similar to Flik's flyers in DCA








    Nice waterfall






    A reasonable priced BBQ


    Flowers


    Cute stage show featuring produce






    Well we only had a few hours at the park but had a great time and the kids loved it. the twins also loved the ride so it looks like Disneyland is in their near future. We ended the day on a little worm ride...

        Looks like a great park. Anyone else have any pictures. Are all the rides toddler rides or do they have grown up attractions as well?

        Great pictures Snorkeld!

          The girl that I nanny LOVES Gilroy Gardens, because she can ride pretty much all of the rides. There are only two which she isn't tall enough for yet.

          I really like the little water area that she can play in also.

            Most of the rides are for Toddlers, there was one coaster but I did not get to see how big it was, but I bet it was pretty small.

              They have a mine-train coaster and a kiddie coaster. A Banana Swing and the best spinny ride EVER!!!!

              We were actually going to go there on Saturday since were headed up north, but opted for the 49ers training camp instead.

              Some pics of the "grown up stuff" from our trip there in 2005.

              Belle almost flew over on these, they are AWESOME!!


              The Mine Train Coaster. It's really fun.


              There are other rides like a Banana Swing, boat rides, train, etc. It's a really great and beautiful park.

                That is SUCH a cute park! I had no idea it existed!
                Good morning, son
                In twenty years from now
                Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                And I can tell you 'bout today
                And how I picked you up and everything changed
                It was pain
                Sunny days and rain
                I knew you'd feel the same things...

                  Stupid guy that was going to give us the tickets for the 49er training camp flaked. So it looks like we'll be heading to Gilroy Gardens on Saturday afterall. Not a bad alternative.

                    Make sure to buy your tickets online they are much cheaper than the door prices.
