“This is something you have never seen anywhere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

I am hoping this place is still open to the public. I believe there were some family situations that might cause it to close because it is the best attraction in city of Fresno. It is a home/area that existed undergrown including growning vegetabes unside down since the ground was so hard back in the old times.

“One of a kind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

When out-of-town friends & family visit, this is a first stop on the 'what to see in Fresno" list. From LA to Philadelphia to Australia, we've taken everyone to Forestiere Underground Gardens. We took our kids on occasion when they were younger, everyone enjoys this one of a kind marvel. We make it an outing, being sure to eat at In-N-Out Burger right across the street, either before or after!

“What a unique place!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

We had a great time while walking around this unique underground house!!! The history behind it is very interesting too! The tour guide was really good and funny.... It is really very amazing... I recomend it!!! $14 per adult to enter... I think it's worth it!

“Unique lifetime experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

A fantastic attraction in a flat/hot ordinary city where you don't expect anything exciting. On the contrary, this garden has become one of very few places I would like to revisit or recommend it to others! I love it and was inspired to accomplish more in my life!
