This botanical garden was disappointing. There is a lot of maintenance required...tons of dead trees and the gardens seemed to be left to their own devices. The maintenance that was being done while we were there was being done on a Saturday morning on the...More

The 85 acres are full of native Californian plants. The paved paths and optional gravel trails take you through many types of plants from cactus to pines. The specimens are well marked. There are benches and maps throughout the property. Very unusual special display of...More

Wonderful relaxing and enjoyable botanic gardens within the city of Claremont. Volunteers are friendly and helpful. We have visited many many times (as we are members) and each time is a quiet respite. Lots of space and benches for solitude or just enjoying the views....More

A great place to unwind - it's beautiful. The signage is poor...and it's very hilly so not a good place if you're unfit or in a wheelchair or with difficultly walking. A bit expensive in my opinion.

Get a season pass so you can visit when you want. My coworker goes on her lunch time to walk for the exercise, safety and to be in Nature.

The start of the gardens is a bit rough but the rest of it is quite nice. We enjoyed seeing some of the different plants and trees and also some of the wildlife and birds around. Some of the signage could be clearer.

I want to say that first of all I have been a supporting member of the garden since 2009. I walk the property at least 2 to 3 times a week. I love the garden. That being said, RSABG could use much work! Especially the...More
