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

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.

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden has to be the best way go and see native wild flowers during the blooming season in Southern California. The garden has many native plants throughout a leisure walk of this of local Botanic Garden in Claremont; they even have a well kept and well stocked nursery area where you can purchase native plants to...

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.
