Great place to check out the native plants, but might be hot for the middle of the day. Bring water! But beautiful when in full bloom.

This is probably the most private place to buy plants! They are only open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday; however, you can find some great plants.!

A bit gone to seed but that's what nature looks like, NATIVE California flora is always welcome in SoCal. Nice to walk the trails and look around, a nice quiet sanctuary away from suburban sprawl Interesting programing.

RSABG is a beautiful suburban Native plant oasis. The long trails take visitors through different plant environments on paved, easy walks. There are lots of different activities throughout the year, from compost workshops to evening concerts. I especially appreciate the Native plant store and advice...More

The 85 acres are full of native Californian plants. The paved paths and optional gravel trails take you through many types of plants from cactus to pines. The specimens are well marked. There are benches and maps throughout the property. Very unusual special display of...More

Wonderful relaxing and enjoyable botanic gardens within the city of Claremont. Volunteers are friendly and helpful. We have visited many many times (as we are members) and each time is a quiet respite. Lots of space and benches for solitude or just enjoying the views....More

This botanical garden focuses on native plants. Gravel trails meander around the well kept property. Wildlife abound throughout. We saw a huge hawk resting in a tree. Many birds squirrels and bunnies scampering about. They also have a nursery that sells native plants. It is...More

A great place to unwind - it's beautiful. The signage is poor...and it's very hilly so not a good place if you're unfit or in a wheelchair or with difficultly walking. A bit expensive in my opinion.
