This place was an unexpected surprise. We gave ourselves 2 hours to visit, but stayed 3 hours and could have stayed longer. The walks through the various regions of plantings from regions of the world that have the same cllimate as Encinitas area. The bamboo forest was amazing. We never knew that there were so many different types of bamboo. The banana grove was fun as well as all the other exoctic fruit trees and the usual fruit trees.
There were so many different plants to see and learn about from various climates--from dessert to rain forest. Overall it was a relaxing and informative adventure. We also got plenty of exercise walking through the gardens
Afterward we went to Jake's in Del Mar for lunch. Right on the sand. A great place.
We hope you get a chance to visit and enjoy the gardens.
