Great blacksmith shop which is open the third Sunday of the month from 1 pm to 3 pm with the forges running and the smiths making stuff. Lots of stuff to look at. The park itself in 5 acres with an 1850"s adobe house , 1870s 2 story limestone bunk house which now houses a museum on the first floor. A limestone chicken coup and food storage building. The massive duck pond, lined with limestone, is fed from a natural hot spring and the well house is also present. Duck food is available for purchase from vending machines at the duck pond. You should not bring bread to feed the ducks as it makes them sick and gives them diarrhea. Picnic tables in the shade from pine and olive trees. There is an event area with BBQ area and tables near the citrus grove which is available for reservation from the park office. Large grass field for children to run and play. Multiple events occur throughout the year including the Halloween carnival with kids games and skulls being forged in the blacksmith shop. Shakespeare in the park performance a couple times a year. Victorian picnic in the spring.
This is a lovely park featuring a small, natural spring lake populated with Geese and ducks. There are several types of geese and a few different types of ducks inclusive of Mallards. You can bring your own food to feed them or are there are conveniently located machines that dispense food. Bring quarters. On site there is a preserved house that was the original owners of the property. They were from Mexico and it was built in the 1800s. There are very many interesting artifacts along the self-guided tour. The admission is free and there is a donation box. Also on the grounds is a stable and a food storage. Its very interesting to see how people lived in the 1800s in Encino. This is a little hidden gem of a park & historical site.
Los Encinos is a beautiful park in the middle of Encino, full of history, lark sprawling walking grounds, and a lake! We visited for its historical designation (CHL #689). The Franciscan padres used Encino as their headquarters while exploring the valley before establishing Mission San Fernando in 1797. In 1849 Vincente de la Osa built an adobe with nine rooms. The next owner of El Encino Rancho was Eugene Garnier, who built the existing two-story limestone house in 1872. In December 1891 Domingo Amestoy acquired the property.

Nice place to visit with kids on weekends. Nice lake with geese. Lots of orange trees. May pick up fresh oranges when trees blossom
Great park with tons of shade, grass, and places to sit. Very relaxed vibe. Parking can be tricky which is why its only 4 stars.
Nice historical site to go see things about how people lived back in time. Nice lake to sit at a bench and eat at.
Nice lake and park to wander with the kids. Theres no pArking lot and the street is metered and usually full.
It is amazing how old this place is. Sad that part of it got destroyed in an earthquake.
My grandson enjoys feeding the ducks and geese at the park I enjoy the histrionic past
