“Lovely and tranquil”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

I was fortunate to attend a reception here. What a charming place. Glorious flowers and very tranquil. If you enjoy nature go wander the paths and soak up the beauty of nature.

“Wonderful setting”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I go often to the Gamble Garden. It's always popping with color, and the sound of water from the many water features throughout, creates a peaceful setting -- wander about with friends or sit quietly to contemplate the beauties of nature. You may even catch a glimpse of Fred the cat.

“Pleasant stroll”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I wanted to test a new macro lens for my Mikon and decided to visit the Gamble Garden. Great variety of flowering plants, small garden enclaves for rest and conversation.

“A nice walking destination”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

This garden is our focal point for walks in the Professorville part of Palo Alto with its varied architecture. The gardens are a pretty good example of "best practices," so home gardeners can get tips for their own schedules. For example, we prune our roses when they prune theirs. It's also a wedding venue for small groups.

“Peace on earth”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

This is a little gem, but it is very small. More of a peaceful spot for a break in a busy day...not for kids.
