Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden
With more than 5,000 species of plants on eight acres (three hectares), the Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden is one of the finest in the area. It was started in 1929, shortly after UCLA itself started in Westwood, and has since served as an important experimental garden. Among its achievements, it can boast growing vegetation like the eucalyptus, which has since become a Southern California staple.

Admission is free.
