This is a nice place to come for a walk or date or just to clear your mind! However, the price is a little steep, especially for students (of which there are many nearby at the Claremont Colleges) and I think a lot of students...More

End of summer weather took its toll on the Gardens. There was a lot of suffering plants and shrubs. Also a warm day. I suspect that spring would be the best time to visit. Most things would be in bloom. Encountered maybe 6-8 more people.

Wonderfully relaxing place with giant oak trees, foliage, shrubbery, a pottery garden, benches to sit on, and seasonal flowers. Docent tours available. I've been there many times. Modest admission fee is well worth the price.

Desert-like plants. Went in the morning, not many visitors at that time. Well kept. Has some shaded areas, however i can see how in the mid afternoon it could get very hot. Overall a very pleasant experience. Recommended!
