GREENBEAN PHARM’S FAVORITE THINGS TO DO NEAR WOODLAKE, CA
WOODLAKE BOTANICAL GARDEN
577 E Naranjo Blvd
Woodlake, CA 93286

Not too long ago, this natural paradise was merely a barren stretch of dirt, Now, the city’s botanical garden is a showpiece of civic engagement, a bountiful urban garden, and an enticing park, flower garden, and community space. Check the website for events like wild blackberry tastings, planting and tilling days to get kids engaged, and much much more!
KAWEAH POST OFFICE
43795 N Fork Dr
Three Rivers, CA 93271
Get directions | Visit website
A monument to a truly fascinating moment in local history, this nearly 110-year-old post office was constructed to serve the Kaweah Colony. Established in 1886 as a Utopian social experiment, the residents were mainly labor activists from San Francisco, though some hailed from further afield. The group folded six years later due to internal conflicts and the Federal Government’s seizure of land to create Sequoia National Park, but this ancient post office serves as a reminder of the Colony’s vanished dreams.
HOMER RANCH PRESERVE
37628 Dry Creek Dr
Lemon Cove, CA 93244
The beautiful and quietly compelling landscape of Homer Ranch is one of the last alluvial woodlands of its kind left in the world. Home to numerous birds, mule deer, mountain lions and others, it’s a vital part of the local ecology, and a fantastic place to unwind, enjoy a picnic, and take in the grandeur of the Sequoia Riverlands. Do check the website for hours, as the preserve is typically open to the public on weekends only.
5600 W Cypress Ave
Visalia, CA 93277
This local amusement park boasts all sorts of carnival-style rides and activities ranging from water slides and go-karts to batting cages, an arcade and more. Though it may lack the adrenaline-pumping thrill of high-speed rides and towering rollercoasters, it’s a sweet and family-friendly way to celebrate a birthday or enjoy a fun, splashy day in the sun.
SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK
One of the most stunning natural jewels in the nation’s crown of national parks, Sequoia National Park sprawls over 600 square miles. That vast acreage contains huge mountains and rugged foothills, deep canyons and vast caverns, and not least the world’s largest trees. The park is home to over 1300 native plant species and 300 native animal species. But if you have time for one attraction only, it’d have to be the General Sherman Tree, the world’s single largest tree measured by volume. Towering some 275 feet tall, it will reignite your passion for magnificent leafy greens (assuming we haven’t done that for you already)!
