We enjoyed our visit to the Gardens, but the drought and the time of year made the floral display somewhat limited. We just love being outdoors, though, so it was still a pleasant walk through the hills and we loved seeing all of the trees and a few lizard friends as well. :)
A very easy to get to Botanical Garden. Not much in bloom in July, Still plenty to see. Offers a very interesting hiking trail. Tuesdays are free days for seniors.
Quarryhill is a research botanical garden with one of the largest collections of temperate Asian plants in North America. The plants are from China, Japan, India and other Asian nations.

Not super easy access to much of this garden but it is so worthwhile seeing if you put a bit of energy into it. Beautiful trees and flora and a splendid place to roam.

A great way to spend a couple of hours on a sunny spring morning. The collection of trees and shrubs from around the world, though mainly the Far East, was delightful, as were the views from the highest part of the garden. Don't miss this arboricultural gem.
This Chinese/Japanese themed botanical garden was absolutely breathtaking and a nice day's outing. The whole loop is easily accomplished in 3 hours or less and the terrain isn't too demanding.
