We found a hidden gem in Orange County called Rancho Las Lomas. It’s a zoological garden and a beautiful location for weddings and events too.
We found a hidden gem in Orange County called Rancho Las Lomas. It’s a zoological garden and a beautiful location for weddings and events too. We were interested in seeing the animals they take care of and had a great afternoon as a family there. Let us show you pictures of their grounds. Special thanks goes out to Rancho Las Lomas in Silverado, Ca. for sponsoring this post so we could share our experience with you.
The grounds are beautiful. If you have never been to Silverado it is tucked away in Orange County and you wouldn’t even know it was there if you didn’t search for it.
- Tucked behind a big wooden gate is Rancho Las Lomas. A place for weddings, events, and Wildlife Foundation that takes care of animals .
Ranco Las Lomas
Rancho Las Lomas Wildlife Foundation had many birds there that chatted with us, and I never realized just how old some species can live! The fact that several can outlive their owners, it makes sense that places like this would be a great place for them to go once their owners can no longer take care of them.
They have two zebras who live together, a few alpacas who live with an ostrich, and what I kids really wanted to check out…..a white tiger!!
Our guide fed it in front of us which was neat and we were able to watch them play with their “toys” for a while. Here’s a video of Rancho Las Lomas for you to see.
There’s a great picnic area at the end of your tour. You can bring a lunch and enjoy the scenery while you eat and let the kids run around a bit.
In addition to the animals there, Rancho Las Lomas is a great wedding location. It is hard to show just how beautiful their grounds are but here are some pictures of the ceremony and reception area.
If you’d like to visit Rancho Las Lomas for a potential wedding location or to see the animals they take care of visit their website.
