All plants are native to the area but since this botanic garden is near three climatic zones (mountain, desert, coastal) that provides lots of variety! Extensive paths lead to various levels. The ancient live oak tree on the lowest level is magnificent. We've visited numerous...More

take an hour or two to get away from the crowds. Not only will you get to know indigenous plants better, but you'll start hearing your breathing and slowing your thoughts/ Great place to get away from hubbub.

We went with friends at night to walk the grounds that had 1300 luminaries lighting the walkways. Various musical venues were offered , and then we enjoyed mulled cider and cookies. It was lovely!

We go to RSABG when looking for landscaping plants or to just get away by wandering thru the gardens. The staff is very knowledgeable, the grounds have many mature native plants, and the nursery is very large.

This is a beautiful place to stroll thru and admire all the beautiful flora and fauna. Relaxing. A lovely place to see, take some deep breaths. I love it there.
