Becoming a garden member is advisable because once you see this expertly planned and maintained garden complex you will want to return. Also Cafe Jardin being on the grounds is another incentive. The food is delicious and served in idyllic surroundings.

I love walking around the garden, photographing flowers. With a large staff of volunteers, the gardens are always impeccably manicured with ever changing floral displays. The library has a large collection of items related to local history. It is a research library, not a library...More

We spent about 45 minutes wandering around the gardens. Many many succulents, beautifully laid out. It's like walking through a life-sized succulent planter! A quick little excursion costing only $5 per person to a nonprofit.

This places was small but quite compact with a fabulous array of flowers. Also the cost is miniscule. The succulent display was fabulous.

It’s a one square block lovely garden with several different plant types including in bloom tulips, ferns, and dessert plants. The library still has a card catalog and offered a bunch of California kids’ books for young visitors’ perusal

I went expecting a giant garden and a walking trail. This is really a library and a volunteer garden. It is kept up beautifully.
