Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden Arcadia Reviews
May 25, 2007
The Los Angeles Arboretum has 127 acres of garden, walkways, lakes, ponds, streams, waterfall which has been featured in many movies, roaming and screaming peacocks, geese, flowers, trees located in the city of Arcadia east of downtown Los Angeles. Apparently a popular place for wedding photos, with many scenic spots, on the big lawn, near the Queen Ann Cottage and the Baldwin Lake.
It is a nice place to go for a walk among a variety of plants and flowers. The peacocks and peahens live here, as well as Canadian geese families. There are many paths with shades, but a hat and sun screen is probably a good idea for protection, as you will be walking around for hours if you want to do it leisurely. They also have a tram service which goes around the garden to save you some walking.
A small brook which goes through a meadow, a knoll atop of the waterfall providing a view of the tall San Gabriel mountains to the north, a rose garden, a garden of herbs and theme gardens for different parts of the world are just some of the highlights in the arboretum.
The Peacock Cafe near the entrance serves breakfast, lunch or a light snack. You will probably find peacocks near here.
