This is a lovely garden spot to visit with amazing roses, poppies, orchids, cacti, as well as an herb garden. It's also great fun to walk through the inside of the house which is all free of charge.

These are lovely gardens in the middle of a Palo Alto neighborhood. It is free to walk through and gain a bit of peace in the middle of your busy life. Children love visiting here, and gardeners and non-gardeners appreciate the fantastic plantings.

The beautiful grounds and gardens are spread out over a few city blocks and anchored by an authentic 19th century craftsman style mini-mansion. If you like period architecture a stroll in the adjacent neighborhood will give you views of an historic era.

A good opportunity to visit a garden that was designed and what an effort was required to well maintain it.
