    There is a 10 acre Botanic Garden in the Tilden Regional Park. There are ten sections to represent the ten different regions in California (including the California Rain Forest). They are laid out nicely with nice hiking trails throughout.

    The kids really enjoyed the Botanic Garden as did my nephew Steve. Steve is a landscape architect and learned some new plants to use in the business.

    There is also a small farm in Tilden Regional Park. It is very educational showing how farms work and many of the animals raised on farms. Kids love seeing the animals.

    Botanic Garden Lizard

    We heard a lot of birds in the garden; but only saw them from a distance. This lizard was hard to see sunning on the rock until he moved.
