    The place is very beautiful. I advise you to visit with your girlfriend, with your family. Entrance from a person $ 5. With parking problems no. In the park you can not bring food and drinks. Workers are very caring for the garden. I recommend to all. Here you can relax from the city bustle and enjoy the beautiful views.

    Wonderful place to spend the day. This place is like an outdoor museum preserving California's native plants. There are winding trails in different directions where you can explore container gardens, Joshua trees, different types of cactuses, a butterfly garden, and more. The air is so fresh and you can smell all the fragrant herbs and flowers. Great place to read a book, study, or just walk and contemplate life.

    We went with friends at night to walk the grounds that had 1300 luminaries lighting the walkways. Various musical venues were offered , and then we enjoyed mulled cider and cookies. It was lovely!

    I have been coming here since 1959. A beautiful place to remind me of where I come from.
