    Great Morning

    We were super surprised to hear the Gardens were dog friendly! We had a wonderful walk and tired our Pup out. Everyone was very dog and people friendly. We now ate on the mission to see what other Gardens are dog friendly.

    Perfect afternoon!

    I just moved to the area, and plan to visit the botanical gardens again and again! Lovely trails and super dog friendly. They have poopy bags if you forget and offer cookies to the pooches!

    Relaxing day

    We enjoyed the leisurely stroll through the gardens. Loved the flowers! After a long drive, this was a wonderful way to spend the day and exercise the dogs. Beautiful and relaxing.

    relaxing walk

    Absolutely the best quiet walk with your leashed dog on a weekday. I really appreciate that they allow dogs and that everyone keeps the area clean. Look forward to this every time we're in Santa Barbara!
