    This place is a gem. We were surprised just how big this place is. It's huge and has a great variety. We're from McKinney and are members of the Dallas Arboretum. The Mendo Gardens offer a reciprocal ...  more »

    Great 67 acher gardens with great cliff sea view in back. Have been here many times. Pet friendly to the point of having a longer leash when we forgot to bring ours. Nice little gift shop in front. Great little cafe for lunch with unique sandwich options. There is a vegetable garden in the middle too. Unique art pieces that change from time to time found around the gardens.

    Spectacular rhododendrons, azaleas, heather, coast Iris or dahlias and ferns and maples in a natural setting. Depending on the season there is always something beautiful to see. The walking paths are easy to navigate and can take you to the bluffs above the Pacific Ocean. I can't leave without buying some plants from the nursery! Take your time, relax and enjoy Mother Nature at her best.

    47 acres of nature. Beautiful experience for the whole family. A must for anyone visiting Mendicino County. Definitely worth the price of admission.

    This is not like most Botanical Gardens that only show you fancy nicely trimmed flowers or trees. Most areas look very natural and park-like. With over 40 acres of land and nice coastal view, it's great for a relaxing walk. Besides the view, i really enjoyed the vegetable garden and the kids area. This place also has nice event areas.

    Parts of the gardens felt like you were whisked away to Jurassic Park. Gift shop was nicely priced. Grounds were immaculate and staff friendly and knowledgeable. Can't wait to come back and bring the kids.
