The garden has three sections - the largest at 35 acres features southern California plant communities that are dry and hot; the Alluvial Garden has palm trees, oaks, wildflowers and cacti; and Indian Hill Mesa, the most cultivated, has display gardens and a children’s area. Pick up a map at the entrance booth because it’s easy to get confused by the intertwining paths.
The garden is fairly accessible. The asphalt paths are cracked and crumbling in places but they are still usable. The sand paths are hard packed and smooth. The narrow gravel trails are rough. Follow the signs for a long ADA compliant ramp to the mesa.
RVs will fit in the lot if backed up over the landscaping or parked lengthwise across the spaces. Garden 34.11044, -117.71558
