gorgeous – beautiful variety of flowers, nice for an afternoon stroll as well as those who go there as botanical enthusiasts !
A woodland paradise just minutes from downtown Santa Barbara. – Perched on 65 acres of land overlooking the Channel Islands, the Botanic Gardens boasts meadows, canyons, redwood trees, deserts and ridges, all strung together by five miles of well-kept dirt trails. Throughout eight habitats representing specific plant communities, there are plenty of peaceful spots to sneak away for a picnic or quiet conversation. Or have a seat anywhere and savor the clean, comforting scent of untarnished nature. Founded in 1926, the Botanic Gardens is a nonprofit institution designed to advance visitors' appreciation of Southern California's native plant life. In addition to walking paths and naturalist-led talks, there are horticultural displays and a garden shop containing information about more than 1,000 species of indigenous SoCal plants. An herbarium--the largest on the Central Coast--houses specimens of the region's rare and endangered plant life, as well as the most extensive collection of California island plants in the world.
