California has many different climates and soils. Here in one spot one can experience many of them, from desert to mountains, from streamside to forest, from seashore to meadow. It is of great interest in any season, but I like it best in early Spring with mist or a light rain. Trails are easy to navigate and the entire garden... More

Spent an afternoon wandering the Botanical gardens. Very well laid out. I was amazed at the number of plants and how well they were taken care of. If you want to go for a nice walk or if you garden at all, you will enjoy the time spent at the gardens.
