“Amazing mecca in the middle of Menlo Park!”

Sunset Magazine Headquarters and Gardens
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 September 2014

My husband, 5 kids and I were lucky enough to be able to visit the Sunset Magazine display gardens and it was simply amazing. Huge diversity of plants and the garden design is inspiring!!! Definitely worth a visit. Check the website to make sure it is open for visits.

Sunset Magazine is an amazing organization that focuses on the American West They publish a monthly magazine that covers best places to travel in the west, great recipes, home architecture, and gardens. We are subscribers and always look forward to receiving their monthly publication.

They also publish many worthwhile books on same subjects (travel, food, gardens, etc.) Sunset also has a very good web site.

One can visit the headquarters in Menlo Park, Ca. They have some nice gardens there and just visited again today.

Our favorite time to visit however is when they do their summer festivals with many food demos, famous chefs, gardening seminars, food, and more. They always put on a stellar event.

Large wooden doors entrance to the spacious reception area lead into an expanse of green lush lawn.
This is a small garden with an ongoing test garden in the back with changing flowers and vegetables being grown and tested. Some of these display you will see in the Sunset Magazine.

The gardens are open during the week at no charge. I will be redoing my back yard and this was a great place to see plants and select the ones to include in my design. And love the serenity of the environment.

Fun to visit and see all the plants. Very peaceful and quiet. There really isn't much more to see here other than the plants and be able to be in peace.
