  • What a wonderful place to walk around in, Not only were all the different cacti interesting to see, the fact that the cactus all support each other in how they grow together was astonishing to me. While walking through l also noticed that surrounding these beautiful cacti were jasper and crystals. I felt the need to be surrounded by nature and I loved my visit.

  • Great time at the Holiday Night event. Music was so wonderful. The hot cocoa and cookies were a treat for all of us and Santa delighted both young and old. A magical night!

  • Nice and well manicured property with pockets of shade throughout the trails. Especially liked the area with the stream along the covered patio. Good place to read or chill out. One minor thing I didn't like was that it is located just off of Ina Rd so there is a lot of traffic noise. Saw that in Oct and Nov they have live music performances every Sunday.

  • Nice place to stroll through native gardens. They had a Sunday concert which was great to relax outside and listen. We got a little lost on the trails, they could use better signs. We plan on bringing the kids for Christmas lights, which should be fun!

  • Food and service are, in my opinion, both unique. The chicken waffle dish was savory and the crusted chicken crunchy and moist all at once. My meal came with a side of lovely looking watermellon, but because I am allergic, the waiter whisked it away and the manager brought a completely redone plate. The cheesy side soup with bacon was as big an attraction as the entree itself. Wonderful experience lunching in the Garden of Allah, so as to speak. The Queen butterflies were out in force in the garden itself. Excellent engagement.
