Jensen Botanical Gardens


Jensen Botanical Gardens is located in Carmichael, California.  It covers 3 1/2 acres and was founded in 1958 by Charles C. Jensen. Visitors will enjoy the hydrangeas, roses, and rhododendrons growing under canopies of mature trees.  There's even a lovely brook that runs though the park.  It is especially stunning in the spring when the tulips are in bloom. 


The garden is open daily from 8:00 AM to dusk.  Admission is free.

  7. That's lovely!

    I've stopped by as part of the A to Z challenge and I have to say, I think it's awesome that your theme is public gardens. What a great excuse to visit some, right? :)
