  • In October, when we visited, crews were harvesting red grapes from the vineyards on both side of the Garden parking lot. The new bathrooms nearby are new and very clean. Fees are only $10 with childre...  read more »
  • This is a well-labelled plantsman's garden, although somewhat past its best at the end of summer. Would be best seen earlier in the year - probably May or June rather than Sept when we visited. What i...  read more »
  • We enjoyed our visit to the Gardens, but the drought and the time of year made the floral display somewhat limited. We just love being outdoors, though, so it was still a pleasant walk through the hil...  read more »
  • THIS PLACE IS Absolutely AMAZING !!!! So quiet and peacefull the beauty is insane ..could spend a lot more day here :)
  • It had a lot of interesting specimens. Most of the plants here are from the Orient.
  • Good place for a lonely hike, meditation, or like I did, go with my family. I don't know exactly, but I estimate that the hike all the way around took less than 2 miles.
  • We definitely had a great time here, even in the Summer when much isn't in bloom. This massive property is gorgeous with lots of trees from China, Japan and other areas of Asia. It's not a small garden, either. There is a map and the property has about 2 miles of garden trails. You'll also see a few sculptures, two beautiful and scenic lakes, and other lovely sites. and even might catch a glimpse of the large family of wild turkeys roaming the property. The gift shop is nice and quaint. There are also picnic tables to eat (bring your own food). We saw a family have a tablecloth, chips, wine and sandwiches which triumphed our fancy Subway. So you could go either way with that. I recommend going in the Spring. Although there are plants that bloom at different times of the year, July probably isn't the best month to make the trip here. It's not a free park. The terrain is fairly simple. Most people can walk it There are a few steep parts, but you can avoid them if needed. The summary of tips: Wear sunblock and bug spray, bring water, bring a picnic, visit in the Spring for your first trip. Wear shoes that can get dirty. Look for a deal on Yipit.
  • beautiful and sprawling gardens. worth a trip if you're in wine country.
