This is one of the nicest venues in the San Francisco Bay area. Great sightlines and very historic. Very organized with decent prices for beer and food. Plus it's a nonprofit. Highly recommended venue.

We took the lookout trail and looped down through the redwood trail. It was a lovely walk with a 3 yo and a baby. The grounds are stunning and beg for a picnic. We'll be back!

The perfect wedding spot... here for a friends wedding... beautiful grounds, patio, lawn area for the ceremony.. We dined on the surrounding patio of the villa and dancing inside.. in the hills of Saratoga. Not familiar with the Arts Center of this venue!
