Wonderful place to spend an afternoon with family. Outdoor venue with educational information for all ages. Take a picnic or just get some exercise and learn about different Southern California plants.

This is a great place, to go on a photo safari, and take great photos!!!!!! There are plenty of plants and flowers to take photos of, even in the fall. There were plenty of butterflies flying around, and once they land on a plant, they will sometimes, stay still long enough, to take a picture. There is a small parking fee, and a $4 donation, but, it is well worth it. There are plenty of easy walking paths to enjoy, with enough benches to sit, and take a break, if needed. This is a highly recommended place to spend a few hrs.

The gardens are just lovely during the spring time. It does require a lot of walking so be prepared. There are different types of plant gardens that are so beautiful. UCR does a fantastic job. Definitely make this an activity to do! Wear a hat!
