Lovely escape from the hustle and bustle

Nice walk. Map and signage good but not great. We enjoyed seeing the local plants and trees. Would recommend if you're looking for something to do for a couple of hours.

The Botanic Gardens are a hidden treasure in Claremont. They have wonderful walking trails nestled along Foothill Boulevard north of the Claremont Colleges. A nice little getaway.

It is a beautiful place to walk. If you are interested there are many educational opportunities. Their special programs are excellent. Something for everyone, but the activities for children are especially fun and educational. Not just plants but birds, native Americans, ecosystems and much more.

The native variety of plants is extremely educational and helpful if you are planning on relandscaping your yard; however, I like walking the paths for the natural beauty and peacefulness. It's an excellent place to "get away from it all" and contemplate.

We see a variety of them in our everyday life and sometimes don't think twice about it. * Travel tip: The Botanic Garden offers Free Days Here are some features that we experienced: * White sage (salvia apiana) is part of the mint (lamiaceae) family * Route 66 California fuchsia...

This garden features native plants but don't let that scare you if you aren't into native plants! It is a delightful garden to wander around. There is great variety in the plantings....from cactus and succulents to oak forests and palm trees. There are many trails and interesting plants to see and they're all well marked for those interested in knowing... More

We had a nice visit to this garden. The people working were super friendly. We dropped the map they gave us, though, so had a little trouble finding our way around and so we wandered aimlessly through the areas. It was all nice. It was not my number one garden of all time, but it was great to visit it.... More
