It is included in the Los Angeles metropolitan area, and not in the city itself. Is always open from 9.00 to 5.00. In such a Garden walk fun. There's plants are located in zones: tropical, Palm trees, a rose garden. Everywhere decals to each tree, a plant. Hummingbirds fly in flocks. Benches much. you can sit in the shade and stillness. Go on all day.
Nice place to visit to see a variety of plants. Relaxing to walk through the garden paths. Sometimes see ducks. Shakespeare in the Park has been there, concerts and weddings. Nice to bring small child... more »
We visited this place on the third Tuesday of last month, where they have free admission for all. This place is much bigger than i thought! Lots to see and explore, especially for kids 😊 there are cacti with names like orange tuna and succulent grape and huge pine trees. Some parts have tropical plants which made me feel like I was back home in South East Asia. There was also a dry lake bed and a few dirt trails, we didn't get to explore the whole area as it was huge! Ample parking, friendly staff, clean bathrooms and wheelchair access.
First came here 40 years ago. Large, old specimens of some trees-- Moreton Bay Figs in particular. Nice cactus area, some other areas a bit run-down. Seems to have had a bit more funding recently, renovations in progress.
It's a great place to visit, hike trails and take in nature. It has a cute shop too with water and snacks. Third Tues is free.
Although it isn't as colorful this time of the year, it's still a nice place to to escape from the hustle and noise of the city. It would be nicer if the dry lake wasn't dry and no music playing in different locations in the park.
Still a nice place to stroll, and enjoy the sights! Great for kids to enjoy something OTHER than an electronic device!
