Buildings and Facilities


The UCR Botanic Gardens houses several buildings on the site, including a gatehouse and meeting room near the entrance, garage used as staff office and equipment space, propagation lath house, and greenhouse. The Schneider House staff office and horticultural library are located along the eastern edge of the Gardens approximately halfway up the property from the entrance. Our administrative unit, BEES (Botanic Gardens, Earth & Planetary Sciences, Environmental Sciences) is located on campus in the Geology Building.

In the entrance gatehouse are two small restrooms, one of which was renovated recently to be ADA accessible. A second restroom building is located uphill from the entrance near the lath house and greenhouse. This space was also renovated recently for ADA accessibility.



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 groups and outside groups whose purpose is compatible with the mission of the UCR Botanic Gardens. 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.
