  • This was my favorite thing from my recent trip to Fort Bragg. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous, even on a chilly-ish, overcast day. I especially enjoyed the succulents garden. The gardens are spread over several acres and is full of winding, wooded paths. You also get stunning views of the rocky coastline. A must-see place in Mendocino County.
  • Dog friendly and the view was absolutely amazing. Plenty of different trails and benches to rest. They even provide poop bags for your dogs, and there are many trash cans as well. I enjoyed my walk there. The adult admission was $15 and military gets in for free.
  • Just beautiful. If you are visiting the area, you owe it to yourself to buy out a few hours to walk through the gardens. Loved the winter mushrooms. Go early, you can have most of the place to yourself for the first few hours after it opens.
  • Beautiful gardens from the European style Gardens in the front to a more of a California park as you get towards the ocean. They have a little shack that overlooks the ocean you just sit and watch the waves and they have a large number of seasonal plants that are blooming throughout the year. I especially recommend visiting during the Festival of Lights where the park is all lit up with fantastical creatures made out of lights at night. Also if you have a pet this is a good place to walk your pet. And if you have trouble walking any distance they have plenty of benches throughout the gardens and even have electric carts that are available for those that need them.
  • $15 entrance fee is a little high. It's a beautiful garden, with blooming flowers even in late December. I would love to see it when the rhododendrons bloom. The gift shop had almost all Christmas stuff. More variety, even though it was close to Christmas would be helpful to find last minute gifts.
