  • Oh my gosh I can't believe I have not had a chance to visit until last week. Special natural oasis in the middle of palo alto with an old world charm and natural beauty. Wonderful for a romantic date with your self or significant other ;-)
  • A quiet garden good for family photography. Privately run, so restrooms are closed over the weekend.
  • Very cute little garden that is a bit larger than I expected. Nice spot for taking photos. Public bathrooms and water fountain towards the back of the park!
  • Lots of cool plants to look at and many volunteer resources available. The staff isn't always the friendliest but you can't complain for free.
  • A wonderful place. Walk carefully and bring the kids. Don't pick the plants, please. Come volunteer for a day. All the people there are real nice.
