California Nursery Historical Park


I went by the California Nursery Historical Park in Fremont. The Nursery was founded in 1884 by John Rock and became one of the largest on the West Coast and was important for introducing new hybrids of plants and varieties of plants. The family now operates the nursery as a mail-order business and it became a park in 1972:












These next two are interesting. The first one is a picture of the grounds in 1887 and you can see the little palm trees on the side. The second one is the remaining palm tree from one of them in the picture in 2018:






The California Nursery Historical Park is a great way to spend an early morning or any time of day.

  1. A nursery historic park? That is a first for me, but then again, I've only visited California once (the San Diego area). I love palm trees, because to me they scream "vacation".

  2. What a beautiful and fascinating place...I would never have thought of the idea of a historic nursery park. I love that one of the ancient palm trees still survives...hooray to Mother Nature in preserving it for posterity!

  9. Wow, what a neat place to go if you're feeling "COME ON SPRING"! Everyone is doing nature this Wednesday & it's really saying "COME ON SPRING" for me!!! It's still very cold here and we had some rain yesterday that turned into ice for a while, but later in the afternoon it melted, but got cold again :(
