The UCR Botanic Gardens is a living museum curated to inspire and facilitate education, research, and interpretation of the natural world.
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.
