  • 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
  • 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.
  • This was our first trip to the gardens and we were very impressed. The beautiful gardens with snow capped mountains in the background. We will be back again. The staff was helpful and frendly.
  • Great for working out or taking a stroll to take in the scenery, plants are well kept, some wildlife activity but nothing dangerous and beautiful views of Riverside.
  • There's a great diversity of plants, insects, and birds to see and learn about at this expansive botanic garden. Plants are well labeled, and the trails are nicely maintained.
