In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Old Poway Park and all City offices will be closed. The City of Poway will immediately postpone or cancel non-essential meetings, gatherings, classes, camps, facility rentals and events that fall within the guidance recently provided by the state. Train Rides, the Museum and Nelson House, Boardwalk Craft Market and Wool Barn will cease operations until further notice. Please view the city’s COVID-19 update page for information about city services as well as up-to-date information about the Poway Farmers Market.
Stroll along the meandering pathways or enjoy a peaceful picnic in our beautiful park. Weekends offer the opportunity to take a ride around the park on the Poway Midland Railroad. Visitors can also tour the Heritage Museum to learn about Poway's unique history and explore the Nelson House to witness what life was like in early 20th century California. Find local and organic produce and artisan foods at our Saturday morning Farmers Market and discover unique handmade treasures made by local artists at our seasonal Boardwalk Craft Market.
*The Poway Midland Railroad, Heritage Museum and Nelson House are open on weekends only (excluding the second Sunday of each month). View the current train schedule.
