Located in the grounds of the University of California Riverside, the UCR Botanic Gardens is the peaceful and relaxed getaway spot for the tired visitor or the quiet seeking local. The grounds are so beautiful, especially during the warm days of spring and summer, sometimes in autumn too, when the flowers are in bloom, trees and the grass is a rich green and birds, animals get around the garden.

Though generally the admission is free, I recommend giving a minimum of $2 donation. Don't miss the garden, you will love it!

Address:
900 University Ave, Riverside, CA 92507, USA

Price:
$2 plus parking fee.

Opening Hours:
8am-5pm daily.
