Enjoy Free Garden Day At South Coast Botanic Garden Tuesday, September 15, 2020!
Palos Verdes homes owners have a great opportunity to visit and enjoy one of the few locations that is still open for exercise here on the Peninsula. As many students are learning under the hybrid system, getting them out for a little exercise might be a fun family opportunity for all to enjoy.
The South Coast Botanic Garden, “The Jewel of the Peninsula,” is located here on the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula and has 87-acres of more than 2,500 different species of plants from as far away as Australia, the Mediterranean, and southern Africa. Popular features include a fish pond, Mediterranean Garden, AARS Rose Garden, Water-Wise Garden, Garden for the Senses, Cactus Garden, Children’s Garden, Fuchsia Garden, Dahlia Garden, Herb Garden, and Japanese Garden. There is an attractive Wedding Lawn and two Gazebos, Events Meadow, and Frances Young Auditorium available for events.
