This South Bay botanic garden covers 87 acres on the northeast side of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. You'll find a mix of Southern California flora, from fuchsia to the talngled roots of Moreton Bay Fig trees, alonside more specialized areas like small Japanese and desert gardens. It may not be as grandiose as some other gardens, but it's well worth the price of admission.

South Coast Botanic Garden says
Unique from the start, South Coast Botanic Garden is one of the world’s first botanical gardens to be developed over a sanitary landfill. The Garden is a masterpiece of creative land reclamation and environment improvement for all to share. It is a living testimonial to the fact that land reclamation not only offers a practical solution to refuse disposal problems, but also beautifies and improves land values at the same time. The Garden has become a beautiful and restorative urban oasis among the hustle and bustle of a major mega-metropolitan area. The Garden hosts weddings and celebrations as well as a number if special events such as outdoor Movie Nights, wine and beer festivals, art exhibits and outdoor concerts.

This beautiful garden is definitely worth a visit. It's expansive and has a variety of different sections, including the rose garden and the Japanese garden. I could spend hours here just taking in its beauty. They also do weddings, which I have heard are fantastic!
