  • This is so far one the the lovely places I have visited. The nature is so amazing. If looking for a place to relax and get out of the city for a bit just come here, you will not regret it.
  • Best place for my kids EVER!!! We go about once every other week... they love to be free and able to roam around. It's beautiful all year but right now it's very lush and just beyond words. We spend hours just enjoying nature that's so close to home
  • I hate to tell people about this place. I really enjoy how nice it is. I visit often
  • Great place to walk around and enjoy fresh air and lots of plants. Great for kids too! $5 suggested donation per adult at the door. UCR students free. There are two public bathroom locations throughout the garden.
  • Love it here. A great place for an easy hike, away from it all. I have volunteered to help prune the roses. Look for the upcoming plant sales.
