The stable and bunkhouse areas are used for public and private events and include interpretive displays. Additionally, the historic corrals and bull pen post and plank fencing previously located between the stable and chicken coop are reconstructed. The project required installation of drought tolerant landscaping and irrigation in selected areas around the stable, as needed for storm water management.
Chicken Coop Reconstruction/New Restroom
The second part of the project consists of the construction of a new public restroom facility equipped with plumbing and a janitorial storage area. The public restroom is located in an area south of the stables where a dilapidated chicken coop once stood. The structure is designed to replicate the original facade of the chicken coop, incorporating horizontal wood cladding. Additionally, the project features installation of drought tolerant landscaping and irrigation in selected areas around the restroom.
All work on the projects complies with the Secretary of the Interior Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties – Standards for Reconstruction
Outdoor Interpretive Sign Plan
The primary objective of the outdoor interpretive sign plan is to welcome and orient the visitor, while providing meaningful connections with Leo Carrillo, ranch history, and the native people, plants, and ranch residents before and during Carrillo’s time at the Ranch.
Phase I of the outdoor interpretive sign plan is currently underway. We're updating the entry/monument sign, and information kiosk in the parking lot. After that, we'll be adding new wayfinding and interpretive signs throughout the park.
