Elizabeth Gamble Garden


The Elizabeth Gamble Garden, located in Palo Alto, California, covers two and a half acres and includes an historic home and carriage house.  The home was built in 1902 by Edwin Percy Gamble, son of the co-founder of the Proctor and Gamble company.  His daughter, Elizabeth, bequeathed the estate to the city of Palo Alto in 1971.


Today, visitors can see fruit trees, a gazebo, herb garden, Mediterranean garden, rose garden, wisteria garden, and woodland garden.

The garden is open daily from dawn to dusk.  Admission is free.

  2. Palo Alto is such a beautiful city in California. I've been there many times but never to this garden. I'd love to wander through!

  5. Not doing the A to Z this year. If I start now, I might be ready for next year. Always love your posts. I'm going to the bay area this summer, adding this one to the must see list.
