If you prefer a quiet getaway unlike it’s more popular neighbor the Huntington Library I would highly recommend this urban retreat of year-round beauty only 14 miles north of downtown Los Angeles. Visitors can enjoy renowned botanical collections including: a 20-acre camellia forest, a 5-acre international rose garden, a Japanese-style Garden and Tea House, California natives including an 1,100-tree Coast live oak forest, and a Lilac Garden. In addition, guests of all ages can enroll in a wide variety of classes and programs, hear great music at summer concerts and experience annual festivals that reflect the changing seasons. More than a park, botanical beauty, peace and quiet, year-'round!
