Buildings and Facilities


The UCR Botanic Gardens houses several buildings on the site, including a Gatehouse with two small restrooms and a meeting room near the entrance. Located on the Gardens property are a second restroom building, garage used as an office and equipment space, propagation lath house, greenhouse, and a business office, the Schneider House, which is located along the eastern edge of the Gardens approximately halfway up the property from the entrance.



Meeting Room

The UCRBG Meeting Room and patio are used for official Gardens activities and programs, including lectures, workshops, member events, and special events such as plant sales and fundraisers. The Meeting Room may be also rented by UCR and outside groups whose purpose is compatible with the mission of the UCR Botanic Gardens to engage the campus and community in the science of nature, gardens, and conservation. In order to protect our collection and facilities, the Gardens lawn is not available for rental, nor do we permit private parties, weddings, or receptions at this time.
