For Nature Lovers and those who want to get away from LA Mar 23, 2008
This 150 acre estate turned into a garden for the public to enjoy is only a short drive from downtown Los Angeles and one of the most enjoyable places to go for quality family time.

The garden has several gardens within the garden including a Japanese Garden, camellia forrest, lilac garden, and rosarium. You can also tour the Boddy House, ride the "encanted" railroad or grab a bite at the cafe.

Bring a good pair of shoes because you will do a lot of walking. The train ride is short but a good diversion - especially if you bring a child under ten.

I recommend buying a membership if you are coming with more than two people. Even if you are visiting from somewhere else a membership gives you access to 190 gardens from all over the United States including several others in the L.A. area.

Come during the holidays for fun programs like their annual Easter Egg Hunt.

Descanso is beautiful! I live minutes from it and go there to relax, journal and take it all in. Camellia's have become my favorite flower! It is a good place for artists.
