It was a little warm the day we were there and the humidity was very high. We still enjoyed our visit. Take water with you, good walking shoes, and maybe a staff. They need more information on the native plants you see there.

Took the whole family - Grandma (me!), kids, and grandkids. We all had a great time - butterfly pavilion was a favorite, but the adults enjoyed the relaxing walking paths, and the kids loved chasing lizards and squirrels! Highly recommended

The Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden is a wonderful place to visit for a few hours and explore native vegetation. The container garden had a great display of sage and mint. The majestic oak was incredible as always. Through July, they have a small butterfly pavilion ($2 extra charge per person) that all enjoyed, featuring Monarchs, Dogface and Swallowtail and... More

Great place to take kids. They can run around and try to see the butterfly exhibit. Nice for an afternoon in Claremont. They have art classes and fun activities for kids.

There is often a misconception about California's botanical landscape because so much of what we see is non-native. Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden offers its visitors the opportunity to see the many different natural habitats in full maturity where they attract native insects, birds, and other creatures. California's native flora wakes up in the Spring with glorious displays. The best... More

One can never imagine how close to the 210 this is by the lack of sound. The garden was a little dry when I last visited, though I'm sure that's due to the drought conditions we're having in California right now. Admission is $8 but can be found for $4 through Amazon Local. Covers a good bit of land and... More

I sincerely wanted to like Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden. It specializes in plants that are native to southern California and northern Mexico and I know they have some interesting plants. I just couldn't find many of them. I had the great misfortune of visiting as they were in the middle of installing a new irrigation system throughout the garden.... More

This is a well maintained botanical garden. It is the home to a large variety of native California plants. There are several areas containing desert plants, trees and flowers. They also have a native village exhibit. There is a lot of walking, some up hill. They have good handicapped access.

Residents of the Inland Empire are so fortunate to have this facility in their backyard. A few hours spent strolling the grounds of RSABG helps one to relax and enjoy the beauty of local floral and fauna. Gardeners snap up native plants at the garden sales events. The gift shop offers unique nature-themed gifts. Classes and events are offered throughout... More
