Descanso Botanical Gardens

The Garden of Eden

Rest From Labor in Pleasant Urban Escapes

This is a place where you can lose yourself in all the beauty that surrounds you. But even if you are not there for the beautiful surroundings, perhaps the serenity is what you have set out to find. Here you will find it indeed. You can sit back on the many park benches and take it all in.

As a photographer, it is a dream place to visit. There is so much around you in every direction to capture through the lens.

For those who like to learn more about the wonderful surroundings, there are classes for students to learn about the beauty of nature and guided walks for others with experienced and knowledgeable staff as well.

Perhaps an unintended benefit is that it can be a place to find inspiration for your home landscape or garden.

The gardens are a place to be at one with nature. The scenery is engaging and beckons to be remembered in a photograph or two. The sounds of birds and a waterfall in the distance can be quite relaxing. It is the peace I find in this place that soothes my soul.
