UCR Botanical Garden

The family and I decided to go on a little hike the other day. We have been living in the Inland Empire for a little over a month now and this was one of the places we enjoyed visiting. We just moved back from San Diego.

It is at the University of Riverside. I believe it costs 50 cents per hour to park and any donation you would like to make is appreciated. So it’s pretty inexpensive.

They have plenty of shaded benches throughout. The perfect place for a picnic.

My favorite garden there is the rose garden. I absolutely love roses and they have so many beautiful colors.



They also have a little butterfly garden.  I spotted a couple of monarch butterflies.



We always pay for two hours and typically finish in an hour and a half. Plenty of time to just walk around. But if you’d like to have a picnic or just sit somewhere and read a book, well it’s not gonna cost you very much 🙂
