I am giving the Burbank Home & Gardens three stars, but only because of the time of year. In the spring/summer, I can imagine that with more flowers in bloom, it would be beautiful. Still, it was interesting to learn about the pink stucco mansion,...More

This would be wonderful in the spring and early summer. The end of September has many of the plants going to sleep for the winter. So plan you visit accordingly.

This municipal park is a fascinating place to visit, not only for flower lovers, but for anyone wanting to know about how many of our flowers, fruits and vegetables came to be. Luther Burbank was prolific in developing new varieties of flowers, trees and vegetables...More

I've always admired Luther Burbank, so I was happy to find that a visit to the gardens of his home did not require advanced planning. The house (not his larger, later home) required a tour and since it was not his most significant home, we...More

Luther Burbank was a fantastic botanist early in the 20th Century, and his work and legacy is reflected in this quaint and relaxing garden in the middle of Santa Rosa.

We visited the gardens and were delighted by the layout and the variety of plants - many attributed to Burbank's work. Interpretive signage was adequate, but sometimes incorrect, and some of the beds needed work. I do appreciate that the gardens and facility are maintained...More

I would agree with Kevin G - certainly worth a visit even taking account of perhaps a few steps.
