  • Beautiful, serene and quiet place to walk around with the family and dog friendly as well. Completely free and open to the public. Make sure to check out the gated sanctuary at the bottom of the hill. There‚Äôs also a legitimate concert hall behind the arts center where big name artists come to perform.
  • Very peaceful garden and statures. Hiking course around the center is through red woods to Vista point. It is short but nice.
  • Beautiful, serene, historical place. Hiking trails w 180 deg View of the bay area, great way to spend Sunday afternoon. Fun for for entire family
  • Writing about my first time there, which was recently. Wow! I can't believe I missed this place. A great venue for a concert. Beautiful, relaxing and friendly. I can't wait to see my next concert here. This review may be shaded by the fact that I saw the B-52's that night and they are a great high energy fun Band. So, until the next time at least, five stars *****.
  • Nice and mellow. Great hike behind the main building. Go midday during winter, mornings in summer. Enjoy!
