  • Plan ahead...only a few weekends for the Festival of Lights. Wonderful gardens for daytime walks; magical if you can get to the December Lights. Local pride is very evident in the extensive volunteer ...  more »
  • I just love walking around well looked after gardens and this is not an exception. In November there is not a lot flowering but there is still so much to see and wander around.  more »
  • We visited on Thanksgiving weekend knowing that the gardens would be entering their winter cycle. Few plants were blooming but even so, the gardens were nice to walk through and the views of teh ocean...  more »

  • Love this botanical garden. I've been during all the seasons of the year and I never disappoints. Something is always in bloom or showing off in some other way. On the most recent trip, the begonias and dahlias were blooming, as was the heather. It's a complete sensory experience walking through, listening to the sounds of the birds, smelling the ocean air, seeing the bright blossoms, feeling the hardy ground cover, and tasting the wild berries that grow within the park. And everytime I come through, I experience something new.
  • Best botanical garden in California. Stroll through the beautiful gardens, walk the path to the cliff house over looking the ocean, eat a delicious lunch and take some amazing pictures before stopping at the gift shop or nursery on your way out. Don't forget to buy something to remember your epic visit with. Best turkey bacon avocado on sourdough I've ever had. Clam chowder was heavy on bacon and veggies. Ended with a Cowlick's raspberry chocolate chuck ice cream scoop. Perfect end to the gorgeousness. Don't forget to admire the talented sculptures and artwork throughout the garden (some for sale.) My favorite were the Alice in Wonderland metal art.
  • Grounds are gorgeous. It’s amazing that all these various plants are thriving side by side. Definitely worth a stroll, but it did get packed and loud while we were there, and crowds are not my thing. If you prefer nature for nature’s sake, you may want to get there early.
  • One of the best parts to me is Rhody's Cafe inside thr gardens. The light fare is fresh and delicious. It is also presented beautifully and served in a cozy atmosphere. The ocean views are incredible at the far end of the gardens. I feel that the garden needs more color.
  • Absolutely beautiful. Was a real joy and a highlight of our ft bragg stay. The flowers and grounds are just gorgeous and fun fun trails allover and leading out to the ocean bluffs. Great for couples and also u can bring your dog. Was really cute to see all the happy pouches.
