UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA RIVERSIDE "BOTANIC GARDENS" ~ Riverside, CA

Whenever David and I take a Sunday drive off the mountain, we try and find a local place to visit; Yesterday was no different. This time we discovered a hidden jewel at UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA RIVERSIDE ; Botanic Gardens!

It actually took us a few wrong-turns to get to our destination, as they are nestled in the Box Spring Mountains on some 40 acres overlooking the campus. We bought our parking pass (self ticket machine) and started our adventure through these gardens.

The first plantings took place way back in 1963. Today, a few of the plants and  trees you'll come across as you stroll through the grounds are an Alder Canyon, Herb Garden, Ponds, Rose Garden, Green House... But better than me telling you everything, GO VISIT this awesome spot yourself. It's a perfect family outing.

Hours are 8:00 until 5:00 PM daily, except New Years, Independence Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

UNIVERSITY of CALIFORNIA RIVERSIDE, Botanic Gardens is located in Riverside, CA (the link will give you all the info you'll need.
