Filoli Gardens are Epic

This beautiful and unique setting has so much space to explore. There is both a grand estate house and sprawling 16-acre gardens that are a joy during any season. The garden has thousands of colorful blooms this spring including tulips, daffodils, wisteria, and cherry blossoms.

Filoli is nestled on a slope of the Santa Cruz Mountains and surrounded by more than 23,000 acres of the protected Peninsula watershed. Adults will be amazed at the beautiful setting while children enjoy the large open spaces and the chance to play hide-and-seek somewhere completely new.
