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.
The Artist-In-Residence program creates an environment in which contemporary local artisans provide a link to the past through demonstrations and displays of traditional arts and crafts. The program is currently in progress featuring Fibrecraft Arts in the old Blacksmith Shop (temporarily referred to as the "Wool Barn").
