A few words from Garden Members
“I enjoyed my visit so much that I became a member. Now I have access to over 300 reciprocal gardens nationwide. This includes the Japanese Friendship Garden at Balboa Park and the Encinitas Botanical Garden as well.”
“What a great way to spend an hour or two with the kids! The garden is not only beautiful & peaceful but educational as well. The staff was friendly & took the time to answer our questions about the many types of drought resistant plants they have on site. Highly recommended!!”
