  • Great scenery many plants and lush green grass, ponds and hiking trails. We had a picnic together amd took alot to pictures. It was a magical place to hang out with a couple of close friends
  • A living library of trees and plants from across the state of California. Some fascinating and unique specimens, strewn across a beautifully kept grounds. The staff and volunteers are very knowledgeable and kind, though note that some tours may move at a rather slow pace.
  • Very nice cool peaceful walk through the dense shaded areas. The bright green colors of the vegetation is relaxing.
  • Nice place for a walk even when little is blooming. #Birding rangers from excellent to meh, but always worth a visit.
  • Beauty variety of plants/biomes, nice meandering oaths and bridges, plants for sales on certain days. Great place to meet a friend and get away for a bit.
