The former home and garden of Elizabeth Gamble (daughter of the founder of Proctor and Gamble) was given to the city of Palo Alto and is run as a non-profit garden center. The house is in a colonial style and the garden retains an Arts and Crafts character. The original garden design was by Alan Reid.

    This is a really stunning little garden, filled with flowers. Magnificent magnolias at this time of year (February) and a wonderful collection of hellebores.
    Former home of Elisabeth Gamble of Proctor & Gamble fame, the garden is entirely tended by volunteers. It's quite delightful and even better, it's free!! If you're visiting other gardens in the area like Hakone and Filoli, squeeze this one in too!

    A lovely community garden with numerous horticultural attractions. Be sure to smell the Wisteria, Roses and Citrus all in the same garden. Enjoy the shade of a Phoenix palm before strolling slongside Delphinium and Alstroemeria. The Bay Area's climate is such that plants from around the world all grow harmoniously together.
