South Coast Botanic Garden
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

While you are in the Palos Verdes area drive a bit inland and explore the South Coast Botanic Garden's 87 acres of plants. Nice place for a stroll among the thousands of plants on display.

This was my 1st time visiting the Southcoast Botanical Garden because I am a member of the Descanso garden, so I was able to get in at Southcoast garden for free. Southcoast botanical garden is an OK place to visit. It is a pretty big garden from area perspective. The garden is emphasizes on California native plants, however, there are some plants other from other part of the country as well from around the world. However, there are not many family like activities compares to Descanso garden. So, I rate it as 3 stars.

As first time visitors, we enjoyed the planted areas near the entrance gate, and a glimpse of the rose garden beyond the construction barriers. We were disappointed with the overgrown and unkempt conditions prevalent through much of the rest of the grounds we viewed. Visitors should be warned of these conditions prior to entry.

Nice place to visit to see a variety of plants. Relaxing to walk through the garden paths. Sometimes see ducks. Shakespeare in the Park has been there, concerts and weddings. Nice to bring small children. They offer classes there too.

Come and visit the newly created Rose Garden!!
This 86 acre hidden gem is a place for children to explore at the children's garden, or create arts and crafts at the "Kids Corner" events, or take long walks among the shade trees. Adults can see an abundant variety of native plant species in the Mediterranean Garden & Succulents and Cactus in the Cactus garden. Great place to sit and relax or to take a vigorous walk or hike. Perfect for multi-generation families or solo visits.
