This is one of my all time favorite places, and I feel bereft if I don't visit at least once a month. Please take into account that I am a CA Native Plant Nerd (TM) but it's really a magical place. If you like the old WPA-Style national parks architecture and trails, this is for you. Delightful trails and human... 更多
Tilden is usually nice and cool on hot summer days. It's great for short hikes. I like to take friends, and hike and sit for conversation rather than sitting at Starbucks or my kitchen table all day. Lovely! I've gone here many times over the years and during different season.

They also have periodic opportunities for plant advice from master gardeners. You can even bring in a leaf from a sick plant for a recommended treatment! And a great place to see plants of the world, grouped by... 更多

The best time to see this delightful garden is after a few heavy rains when the water is flowing. It is amazing how the displays model various California climates and geographical areas. We like to go to their native plant sales. The docents are very informative and passionate about natives.
At first glance the garden seems small and of limited interest, but how wrong we were. A wide variety of plants from across the state together with a number of birds, insects and lizards make this a great visit. A 30 minute intended visit turned into 2 hours and we could have stayed much longer. They also were hosting some... 更多
This is a very nice botanical park. We parked across the street from it and entered it for free. There are various garden sections to explore such as Channel Islands, interior, coastal mountains, etc. However, each plant there is a "native" plant to California. Its interesting to see how diverse the plants are in California at this botanical park. There... 更多
