  • I went to Allied Arts on a sunny day. The gardens at historic Allied Arts is very nice. There are a variety of stores there. Some were preperaing for the Easter holidays. There is also dining.

  • I came to this place on Friday afternoon just to explore and spend some pleasant time. The place was not crowded, only few visitors. several parkings are available as well as racks for bikes. The place is quite spacious: here and there are small artisan shops - fabrics, ceramics, jewelry, soap, pottery - beautiful gardens, cozy benches, fountains. In the main mansion, there is a cafe and a restaurant. Next to the the main mansion you will find a flower shop and a small art gallery - free entrance - with artworks of local painters from the Bay Area. Overall this is a beautiful and peaceful park for spending a couple of hours in peace with yourself, enjoying flowers and birds, shopping hand-made items or sipping some coffee in a peaceful atmosphere. I definitely recommend visiting this place, it is a true pearl of the neighborhood.
  • What an adorable event space! I officiated a wedding here and was so charmed by the layout and beauty. The flowers were in full bloom, and the architecture was quaint and romantic. There are shops onsite that I was able to check out before the ceremony began. We bought little gifts at the cute pottery shop that has a resident shop cat who is very feisty. I was impressed by the diversity in gift shops. I would like to come back and check out the cafe that is also onsite. I'm also considering hosting my next event here! If you're in the area, you have to stop by to check out this sweet little venue.
