37 Acre Oxygen Factory

Visited the San Diego Botanical Garden in Encinitas today with my mom and my sister. Over 3,000 plants and trees covering 37 acres produce more than enough oxygen to help energize a person to walk the four miles of trails through gardens with authentic species from around the world including Australia, Africa, Central America, Mexico, the Mediterranean, New Zealand and South America. There are also specialty areas such as the incredible bamboo garden (largest in the U.S.), desert gardens, herb garden, palm canyon, tropical rainforest (one of my favorite areas with a waterfall), and subtropical fruit garden. A two-story wooden outlook at the end of a plank walkway can be found on the north side of the property. You can kind of see the ocean from there but generally the view was a bit disappointing. Also worth at least a quick look are the Hamilton Children’s Garden with interactive play and learn areas for kids, and the Seeds of Wonder Children’s Garden with topiaries and a miniature railroad. Like most accomplished gardens, this one teaches as much as it presents.
