Low key, old fashion way to spend a couple of hours, strolling around these lovely gardens. There is no charge and a donation would likely be welcome. Located in one of the nicest neighborhoods in Palo Alto, easy parking.

This is a small pleasant public garden in a residential area. Beautiful flowers, gazebos, etc. Not a lot of space to walk in, but perfect for an easy stroll with an elderly parent!
