We were searching for something to do which was close to home, easy to get to and not crowded. We found it! Most plants were dormant because it's still "winter" but I can imagine how different it would be in the spring when flowers are...More

We went with friends at night to walk the grounds that had 1300 luminaries lighting the walkways. Various musical venues were offered , and then we enjoyed mulled cider and cookies. It was lovely!

We go to RSABG when looking for landscaping plants or to just get away by wandering thru the gardens. The staff is very knowledgeable, the grounds have many mature native plants, and the nursery is very large.

This is a beautiful place to stroll thru and admire all the beautiful flora and fauna. Relaxing. A lovely place to see, take some deep breaths. I love it there.

End of summer weather took its toll on the Gardens. There was a lot of suffering plants and shrubs. Also a warm day. I suspect that spring would be the best time to visit. Most things would be in bloom. Encountered maybe 6-8 more people.

This is a charming and beautiful gem in Claremont. I started taking my children there when they were toddlers and they still enjoy going over for walks when we visit - and they're 27 and 30! I've also attended a wedding here in July and...More
