Do not expect a traditional botanical garden! However, it is really cute and you will see some great plants. This is not a must but it was fun.

Parking sucks - you leave your vehicle on the street and walk in - but the gardens are amazing. You won't find a bigger collection of succulents anywhere, some of which are very rare. It can be a little crowded because they pack so much...More

Interesting and not expensive, but is very small. Parking in the road seemed ok. Not a 'must do' but enjoyed as have always liked cacti, succulents.

Nice cactus everywhere but expensive to get in. You don’t get nothing for $10 and it’s very very small but beautiful grounds. You will be fine in half hour so don’t count on that place to be a huge part of your day

I am glad I read the reviews about this garden; it helped us decide to give it a try. There is more here than you would expect. There were enormous cactus plants- so many varieties - and some palms, but there were also several hummingbirds...More
