Great to see indigenous plants. Well kept up and great for an afternoon walk? No waiting, but during the week there may be school visits.
I planned to stop here for natural beauty and inspiration before heading off for a personal retreat/planning day. I loved it so much I changed my plans and spent the whole day here. The grounds are so beautiful that it made the top 3 spots to have my 25th wedding anniversary vow renewal here as well.
Interesting garden, to be sure. Much of it seems very untended, but therein is the beauty of this place. One can wander around for a while and feel away from it all. We were there in the winter, and much was dormant. I imagine in the spring this place would be beautiful.
This place is so peaceful. I actually got lost because it is so big! There are walking trails and so many plants to see. Do not take small children there unless you have a place to carry them in (stroller, backpack) because it's a big place and walking will get them (and you) tired.

There are different paths to take and many benches to sit and contemplate the beauty around. They have different events throughout the year. We visited the butterfly pavillion in the late... More
There are separate areas for the differing ecological areas of California, each with the native plants for that area. The grounds are well-tended and it's a restful, relaxing walk through California in one area of the state. I'm a wildflower enthusiast, having driven all over the lower half of California to see wildflowers almost each year since 1964, and I... More
