Review for THE ELIZABETH F. GAMBLE GARDEN, Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden is a local gem! This almost 3 acre public garden in a residential neighborhood is open every day, dawn to dusk. Each month Gamble Garden offers many gardening classes for all ages, garden size, and interest and also many events for children and families. The demonstration gardens are spectacularly maintained and well labeled. The Gamble Horticultural staff is often around and always willing to stop and answer questions. In addition to the hort staff, twice a month the Santa Clara Master Gardeners are on-site offering in-depth information and answers. There is also a free library on-site with some specialized gardening and plant books. This property and garden are entirely supported by donations - no public money. Gamble's biggest fundraising event of the year is the annual Spring Garden Tour, always the last weekend in April. It is a walking tour of five local private gardens. If you love gardens, don't miss Spring Tour!
