“Very Nice and Free”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Drove by and saw the sign so we decided to stop. It was past closing time but was still open (and free) which made it very nice. The Gardens are beautiful and had many flowers blooming. We enjoyed the scenery and beauty. We sat on the benches and just relaxed.

I have visited Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden many times, It is so beautiful there with lots of flowers., The gardens as a whole are beautiful. The volunteers there do an amazing job of maintaining this breathtaking garden. There is also an old house on the property.

“A beautiful garden well worth a visit”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

This is a beautiful garden, not far from downtown Palo Alto. The property was bequeathed and is now looked after by a trust and an enthusiast group of volunteers. In May the gardens were a profusion of colour, with many cottage garden plants in flower. While we were there an artist was set up and sketching and painting, gaining inspiration from the many flowers. The garden is set out in rooms. In keeping with California's Mediterranean type climate, there is a developing series of garden beds being planted with plants from the different Mediterranean regions. The big house has been well kept and serves scones and tea at different times. There is plenty of shade in summer.

“Small oasis of calm.”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

Had a visit here and it was very lovely. Quiet garden to walk round at leisure but missed the teas. A great place for a break.
