I can never get enough of this place. If you're into gardens, you'll love it. I've gone there at least 4 times every year. Last year, I became a member, which enable me to go whenever I want and it also pays for another adult and 2 children as well. Prices have gone up the past couple of years. They've added another center as well for research.
Many scenes from movies have been filmed here. One in particular I recall is The Wedding Planner starring Jennifer Lopez.
The Japanese Garden is one of the various gardens throughout. It contains a pond with koi fishes in them and buddha statutes are found throughout. There is also an actual tea house up on the little hill.
Some events they offer throughout the year includes:
Holiday Cards: Chinese Brush Painting
Watercolor Techniques for Botanical Illustration
There are also special exhibitions including:
MaryLou and George Boone Gallery: "The Bible and the People"
Library: "Celebrities, Friends, and Strangers: Portraits by Don Bachardy"
- Pros:You should at least visit it once if you're into Art and Gardens
