“Go When Its Cool Out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

This is a unique spot to see the native plants of California and have a good walk in a quiet atmosphere. It is more pleasant on a cool day, as the natural flora and fauna of Cali is not all that lush. It is more open and barren...like the desert. Go early and enjoy.

“Lovely place to walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

I really enjoyed this garden. We arrived an hour and a half before closing, and the sun was starting to light the mountains beautifully as it set.

“Relaxing stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

It's a wonderful place to stroll on a visit to Claremont and you can give it as much time as you want. Great variety. I would just ask them to improve their identifiers and map.

“A Beautiful garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden showcases native California plants. It's a great place to visit and end the day meandering through the various smaller gardens to be found inside. There's a really nice gift shop there with some unique items and the volunteers there are friendly and knowledgeable.

“The Botanic Gardens are lovely if you like walking through gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Gardens are lovely and refreshing if you enjoy strolling through these types of gardens. Its peaceful and calming. The paths are fun and can be winding and fun for kids. Not a huge garden but big enough. It is filled with plants native to California so don't expect a lot of flowering beds etc.
