I took one of my Australian cousins here, because he is what is called an "arborist" in his country, and he really loved it. It was lovely, and the walking is good exercise.

The first time we came to Pasadena we visited the Huntington Library and were obviously impressed. I did think this wouldn't be as good but I was wrong. Perhaps because fewer people visit, it just seems like a much calmer, peaceful place to truly escape...More

The arboretum is beautiful and a great place to see Peacocks of all shapes and sizes. It was very hot during our visit so would have appreciated more shade, but we had an enjoyable time. The gardens are very well maintained

It is not too big and good place for a very pleasant walk. Unless you have a good sense of direction, you will wander around and wonder where you are. But that’s what nature is about.
