Enjoyed exploring the paths to the diverse areas of the arboretum. Tropical plants in the greenhouses were blooming and very colorful, then a couple minutes walk found a different world of desert cacti. Appreciated seeing zeriscape areas, too. Saw lots of lovely peacocks wandering about,...More

This place is absolutely beautiful. From the trees to botanical gardens and let’s not forget the star attraction, wild peacocks. Absolutely a must if your in the Greater Los Angeles Area.

I really liked the waterfall with the turtles. The front entrance with the fountain is also nice. Liked the California water garden, too

A large Arboretum and botanic garden. Plants and trees are in various areas in geographic sections on the grounds. Australian, Mediterranean, South American, African, and North American. Fountains, ponds, and lots of peacocks. Long pathways help in getting around. Recommended

Really enjoyed this nicely laid out garden, broken into segments by plants from the different continents. There is a very wide, asphalt path you follow as you go from one area to the next, making it very easy for families with strollers or anyone who...More
