Santa Barbara Botanic Garden
Situated on 65 acres, this garden features over 1,000 species of rare and indigenous California plants. This beautiful place also features five and a half miles of scenic trails through meadows and canyons, and across the historic Mission Dam.
This is a nice attempt to have a real botanic garden, but there are far better ones in California, especially the Arboretum in Arcadia.
There is an adequate selection of native plants, and a store for souvenirs, but the retail nursery is unattractive and not well organized.
We were worried that this might not be a good trip for the kids, but we were wrong! The kids, ages 5, 7, and 8 loved climbing on the rocks, over the river, through the woods, and across the bridge. As a teacher, I loved the numerous areas for educational learning through the basket weaving, or the explaination of the Santa Barbara Mission water system. It was a great trek through the woods and we enjoyed seeing lots of lizards!
I have visited most of the best Botanical
Gardens in this State, and this is one of the best. It lies in the hills above the
Mission, the setting is beautifull, and so
are the selection of plants.
The children would like the trip, it would make a good school outing. The cost if quite reasonable, you could easily spend the day.
A beaautiful, peaceful place to visit. The "Toad House" which is a maze like house to walk through made out of willows is incredible! It's not far from the Mission so it is a good place to go before or after your tour there.
