Welcome to the UCR Botanic Gardens! Located in the foothills of the Box Springs Mountains on the east side of the University of California, Riverside Campus, the Gardens covers 40 hilly acres. Come visit our collection and gardens, wander over four miles of scenic trails, or just relax on a bench and enjoy the beauty and vistas.
The UCR Botanic Gardens are open daily, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, except for major holidays, special events, and during UCR campus closure. Gates locked at 5:00 pm. 1:00 PM late opening days occur on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month.
