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.
