Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens

Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens

Located in the Dunsmuir City Park in far northern California, the Gardens encompass ten acres of  hilly, wooded area with a meadow containing the various gardens. Playground area and picnic sites border the beautiful Upper Sacramento River.

The native white dogwood is prolific in the park and provides a glorious show in the spring. Unique to this area are many Shasta lilies growing on the hillsides and the beautiful, fragrant native azaleas that grow along the river. In addition to the many beautiful native species, a variety of other perennial plants and shrubs have been introduced. These include rhododendrons, hostas, ferns and Japanese maples. During the spring and summer, various annuals greet visitors with a rainbow of colors.

Numerous walking trails meander through the park, allowing hiking and good viewing of the native and introduced plant material. The Dunsmuir Botanical Gardens enhance the natural setting and provide a tranquil environment for visitors. The meadow is the venue for the Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra ‘Tribute to the Trees’ concert, and other events throughout the year.

This park is dog friendly.
