  • Nice garden Peacefull, educational Wedding venue
  • So much fun for kids of all ages
  • Nice small garden of the future...
  • This is a great resource if you are looking to makes changes to your garden/yard in light of the current (or future ) drought conditions. Informative and interesting. Plants are labeled so you can find the names of the ones you like. The is a docent-led tour Saturday mornings at 10:00 that is very informative.
  • Free! I've been to exhibits that have charged a fee and aren't anywhere near as good as this.Family friendly, can be highly educational for those interested in water efficiency, landscaping, gardening or just relaxing, if you're looking for a day out to just tune out. Would be a great spot for a picnic, they have a small sandbox and playhouse for the kids too. Would love to catch a concert at the amphitheater! I can't do it justice by rambling on, go check it out!
