Sherman Library & Gardens, Corona del Mar

4.7
#3 of 8 in Wildlife in Newport Beach
Sherman Library & Gardens was founded in 1966 by Arnold D. Haskell and named in memory of Moses H. Sherman, educator and California pioneer.

Sherman Library & Gardens provides a museum of living plants, displayed in an attractive setting of fountains, sculpture and well-tended shrubs and lawns. Large flower beds and numerous hanging baskets radiate seasonal color and accent the Early California architectural theme of the surrounding buildings.

The Library maintains a small exhibit room displaying items of historical interest. Within the Library itself hangs a modest collection of California impressionist paintings

    I have had lunch at Sherman Library & Gardens several times. Each time I was impressed with the quality of the food. In addition, the setting is lovely...serene, beautiful, and quiet. Strolling through the gardens and gift shop before and after lunch made it an especially nice place to meet-up and visit with a friend on a sunny afternoon

    This is a truly a secret garden. If you blink you will miss it and never know it's so beautiful inside. We visited this by accident and was well worth the time. There's a gift shop and cafe onsite.
