  • The botanic garden is portioned off from the main area of the park which has an impressive view of the hills and natural areas. As a former UC Master Gardener, I thought the botanic garden...

  • Overall, the garden area was pleasant. Most plants were not looking too well, but that's to be expected in fall. The signage and markers made for an edutaining time. A book box was a pleasant surprise to see, and a wonderful treat for any children that visit. Be aware of surroundings as there are possible snakes in the area, although we came across none. Relaxing experience indeed.
  • Connected to the River Park, this area becomes a quiet sanctuary when you walk under the archway. Flaura is wild and thus, allows one to see what grows in the central coast area. A lovely gazebo welcomes you, I'm sure has been the sight of many weddings. Find the wishing tree and leave your wish on a tiny piece of paper and hang it on the tree. Trust me, it will make you smile.
