Botanical Gardens & Nature Center

  We were expecting a garden so we were somewhat surprised at the large reptile and exotic bird exhibit. Many are rescued pets that the owners had to give up. Most of the garden acreage has been left in a natural state. The more manicured areas include Rose, Plumeria, Hummingbird, Desert, and Tropical Gardens. There’s an enclosed Butterfly House (few butterflies at this time of year), and Orchid and Bromeliad Conservatories.


  The entrance to visitor center has a short step up. The main paths are paved, hard packed finely crushed stone, or boardwalk. The boardwalk sections are very steep were they meet the ground. The Oso Creek Loop Trail is rocky and rough but it may be possible to roll along it with assistence.

  The parking lot is large enough for RVs.
