Our son;s wedding was recently at Gamble Gardens-the grounds were charming with many fantastic photo areas. The staff was so helpful There was a beautiful area for dining and the garden for the ceremony was perfect. It is definitely for a smaller wedding but if that is your choice we highly recommend this venue!

Stop by and enjoy this small garden. There's bound to be something in bloom and it's free. There's also free parking.

The Gamble gardens are definitely worth visiting. There is no admission fee, and for those who like history and gardening this is the perfect place. When we visiting in late July, there were only a few other visitors, and we mainly had the gardens to ourselves. The place is very well maintained, and the collection of plants, and flowers is...

I grew up in Palo Alto and my mother sill lives in the home that I spent my formative years. The Garden is an effort and collaboration by many volunteers. I have wheeled my mother through the gardens many times to view the beautiful flowers and shrubs. The Gamble home adjoins the Garden and is worth visiting and viewing. There... More

This is a very nice garden which has a small free parking lot and is free to enter. There are a lot of beautiful flowers here and some picnic tables. A few ladies were enjoying their lunch at one of them. We walked around for about 20 minutes and were able to see everything. Its a great place to stop... More

Beautiful kept gardens and grounds surrounding historic old mansion of Gamble family. It's clear this is a treasured piece of land in Palo Alto. Serene and notable spot for locals to come take pictures of families and engagement photos, as well as pet photos!

I really enjoy stopping here when I am in Palo Alto. It is very serene and beautiful. It is very nice to see a large variety of plants whether they are native or not (large native area). The flowers last weekend were absolutely beautiful.
