  • Amazing botanical garden to visit. It has over 8000 plants from around the world. It has many beautiful garden sections. It takes about 2.5 hours to go around the garden. It’s good to visit with a friend. There were many coyote warnings around the garden. The fee was $10, but it had a free guided tour. So it was an amazing deal. There are restrooms around the garden but they are not very clean.
  • What a spectacular garden to visit! Over 8000 exotic plants from around the world. A display of beauty, you will encounter several different collections of garden displays, which are broken down into sections. Enjoy a walk with free guide tours. Trained experts hold these exciting excursions departing from the bookstore (Monday thru Friday at 1:30pm; and on weekends from 10:30am to 1:30pm) and from Friend Gate (2pm on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday).
