These are lovely gardens in the middle of a Palo Alto neighborhood. It is free to walk through and gain a bit of peace in the middle of your busy life. Children love visiting here, and gardeners and non-gardeners appreciate the fantastic plantings.

The beautiful grounds and gardens are spread out over a few city blocks and anchored by an authentic 19th century craftsman style mini-mansion. If you like period architecture a stroll in the adjacent neighborhood will give you views of an historic era.

A good opportunity to visit a garden that was designed and what an effort was required to well maintain it.
