  • Unlike Filoli, touring this garden is free. It is small and lovingly cared for by a team of volunteers. You can also find unique plants for sale at reasonable prices. Bring a picnic or sip a cup of coffee while enjoying the beautiful garden.
  • I visit your place with my family, because this place figure as botanical park on lot of guides. We arrive to the place where no one receive us, we walk between lot of flowers without specification and lot of bees. This place could be a great place with a guide or for someone that love flowers, but could not be in a tourist agenda, familiar agenda or something similar. We cannot stay more than 5 minutes in this place. We cannot find a place to sit or to go bathroom. Sorry, but was a bad experience for us... Maybe as we doesn't know the place before, we miss something, but I need to evaluate what we see. I will change my opinion, because actually I was a little bit hard... but anyway I could not recommend this place for tourists.
