Beautiful Botanical Gardens with winding pathways and many exotic as well as native plants. This has been a long time Encinitas attraction which has been renamed to the San Diego Botanic Gardens. Well worth the visit for the serenity.

We are members of the Botanical Garden. It is a very lovely, peaceful walk. A delightful children's area to climb and explore. The sculptures are rotated and for sale. Fun and reasonable Garden store. We go often and always take visitors.
