It was just by accident I found the Gamble Garden in Palo Alto. I've been to Palo Alto many many times and always take Hwy 280. For some reason, I happened to go on Hwy 101 that day and drove right by the Gamble Garden. Unfortunately I just saw the big sign that time and didn't get to see the rest of the beautiful place. Of course, I went back as soon as I got a chance & many times since. Here are some photographs from my most recent visit.
This place is easy to find with a big sign @ Embarcadero & Waverly in Palo Alto.
Gamble gardens has flower garden, vegetable garden, house & rose garden. It is much more relaxed than my other favorite garden Filoli in Woodside, which has a much more manicured feel.
Gazebo in the middle of the vegetable garden adds interest and teeny bench seats.
On the other side of the house beyond these gates are rose garden & a sun dial
Here is an old picture with my family to show the house.
Such a lush & relaxed atmosphere here! Can't you just picture yourself here with a glass of lemonade?
