We came in February. There were some plants not out yet. Still. I was amazed that they had so many flowers. It was especially for cacti. I liked that! I I took my time. We even saw a lizard. Lots of beautiful flowers. There was a herb garden. There were roses, even in February. They had oranges as well. There was water and who was in the water: Turtles. This is a must see! We enjoyed this beautiful University of California Riverside Botanic Gardens. We had to pay parking, buy the University of California Riverside Botanic Gardens was free.

I went to the botanic gardens with my family on January of this year. We got there around 11 in the morning, and were able to find parking. I would recommend getting there earlier if you want parking that is right by the entrance. We had to park (not free) and walk to the entrance of the gardens, which isn't that far. This is totally worth it! The botanic gardens have multiple trails. My favorite things to see here in the summer are the rose garden, herb garden, and the butterfly garden. We visited again in January, which didn't look as pretty as the summer and spring. However, we still enjoyed the trails, be careful some areas are steep! I also liked how the trails have accessible paths for areas that may be difficult to walk or hike. Overall, this was great experience! The trails are not as crowded. The different flowers, trees, and plants you see is amazing. I would recommend smelling the popcorn tree that is near the herb garden. Also, make sure to take a tour and leave a donation! This is a great place to go if you want to experience and explore nature with your family.

This is a wonderful garden. You could spend hours roaming around here. There are lots of plants from other countries that we might never be able to see otherwise.

I would definitely recommend this wonderful garden for your next visit! I'm impressed with their collections, there were benches that invite you to sit down and focal points to pay attention to. We took an hour and a half walking maybe half of the area and totally enjoyed our visit!
