___ In the larger San Francisco Bay Area, here’s a fun activity.
Ardenwood Historic Farm
34600 Ardenwood Blvd., Fremont, CA, 94555
1 (888) 327-2757
Ardenwood Historic Farm is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays, year round, including Labor Day and Memorial Day.
It is a part of the East Bay Regional Park District

Fremont is a community between Hayward and San Jose in the San Francisco Bay Area. Drive South from San Francisco via Highway 280 or Hwy 101 (280 is beautiful). Fremont is then reached via the San Mateo Bridge, most easily.

A visit to Ardenwood is a journey back to the time of the Patterson Ranch which was a prosperous, 19th-century country estate, including a beautiful mansion and its elaborate Victorian Gardens.

Today the Historic Farm exhibits agricultural practices from the 1870s to the present; demonstrates the transition from horse-powered to horsepower and visitors can see and participate in many activities common to a turn-of-the-century farm.

Non-reservation weekend programs include planting, tending and harvesting of Ardenwood’s organic crops and farm chore demonstrations. These are and hands-on experiences for the whole family.

Since Ardenwood is a working farm, as you would expect, the daily activities change from season to season. No two visits will be exactly alike.
