Neverland Ranch Wall
Neverland Ranch was once owned by popstar Michael Jackson. He sold the huge home and amusement park in 2008.
Neverland Valley Ranch is a developed property in Santa Barbara County, California, most famous for its association with American pop musician Michael Jackson.
The ranch is located at 5225 Figueroa Mountain Rd, Los Olivos, CA 93441, about 5 miles (8 km) north of unincorporated Los Olivos (about eight miles (13 km) north of the town of Santa Ynez), in the Santa Ynez Valley. The property covers an area of over 2,800 acres (1,100 ha). The area surrounding Neverland previously consisted of working ranches; today, the area is made up of vineyards. The property was purchased from golf course entrepreneur William Bone.
The ranch operated as Jackson's private amusement park and home when the facility opened in 1988, but is no longer in operation. It contains, among other things, a zoo and a theme park, with a Ferris wheel, merry-go-round, zipper, spider, sea dragon, wave swinger, super slide, dragon wagon kiddie roller coaster, and bumper cars. It is named after Neverland, the fantasy island in the story of Peter Pan, where children never grow up.
