Come have fun! This is a great place for fun, food, shopping and more! Right off I-80 and accessible by crosswalk to both sides of shopping strip.

Family park is long since gone. There is a very large big box shopping center in place at the old Nut Tree property. The carousel & toddler train is all that remains. Closed well before 9/15.

As a kid grew up riding the Nut Tree train. Now it is a silly little loop. If I were the train after coming down so far I would go off the rails and refuse to run. With that said it can still be fun for some. Bust hard to swallow this new Nut Tree knowing what the old one... More

This place has turned into a retail mall complex with lots of shops and restaurants trying to compete with the outlet mall across the freeway. There is a carousel, seesaw, rocking horses and a train for kids. The train is $2 for two slow trips around the smallish play area. The old pictures and videos on Tripadvisor are outdated since...

Nut Tree is mostly restaurants and retail now, but the small amusement park area is cute. There are some things from the old Nut Tree like the wooden rocking horses and the carousel. The old conductor-driven train is back too, making a circle around the amusement area. Nearby is Fenton's, where you can sit down to dinner or killer sundaes,... More

Start at Fenton's, their Cob Salad is the best and I am an expert on Cob Salads. Begin your shopping experience on a full stomach at the great OUTLETS> Lots of great items and lots of great deals. Anything you could ever need or want will be found at the Nut Tree.

The amusement park is closed. There is now a plaza area with a small train offering rides at limited times, a merry go round operating at limited times, some rocking toys and teeter totters, and a playground merry-go-round. It is a good place for young children and families to play, but the chidren 6 and above may not be entertained... More

We used to come when I was a kid as a stop on the way to Lake Tahoe or Reno from the Bay Area. It's changed a lot now that it's all stores, restaurants, one small area for rides and a very small area for kids to play. My wife wanted Fenton's but the line was really long. Aji Sushi... More

This is a nice area to shop and eat. Spend a few hours cruising around. Shopping or browsing, have lunch, enjoy a nice casual stroll through the center. If you have kids (pre-teen) you should enjoy the family park as well.
