  • I love this garden. No charge for admission, but donations appreciated. Beautiful paths that you can even take a stroller along. Beautiful variety of plants and a butterfly house.
  • A great place to get great ideas for your own garden
  • Was way better than I expected. A born and raised San Diego in, can't believe it's taken me a lifetime to find this Hidden Gem. Can't wait to go back.
  • Beautiful and educational! Just like Cuyamaca College.
  • Beautiful! Peaceful! Great ideas.
