I'd driven by here several times on visits and finally had the opportunity to stop. It's worth the stop! Beautiful plantings in a quiet setting. Hummingbirds, turtles, cacti as tall as trees. Nice, quiet place.

Small, but lovely area with many varieties of plants. Nice cafe area too. Took many photos. Free parking. If you are a member of any botanical gardens this one is a reciprocal for you. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

A beautiful hidden gem in the heart of Corona Del Mar. Come over on free Monday and enjoy very well maintained beautiful gardens, pool, fountains. Have a lunch with the best view of the garden and fountain. Food was delicious, service was great.
