Please pardon our appearance as we make garden and facility improvements:

Through January 28, a small section of the Garden on the Embarcadero side will be closed for irrigation improvements.

Through March 21, the first-floor interior of the Gamble House will be closed to self-guided tours as renovations take place.

The garden remains open to the public free of charge during daylight hours and is available for private rentals. The Main Office is accessible from the East side (Churchill side) of the Gamble House M-F, 9am-2pm.

Gamble Garden needs your support to reach our Annual Appeal goal of $120,000.

LIFE IS SIMPLY BETTER IN A GARDEN

Maybe it’s the chance to stop and reflect; maybe it’s just the astounding beauty.

The Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden, a non-profit organization, is a remarkable resource for everyone. Located in Old Palo Alto, our historic property has a rich legacy, a commitment to education, and year-round beauty. Come see Gamble for yourself—it’s free and the garden is open to the public every day during daylight hours.

Our historic two-and-a-half acre property includes a rose garden, cutting garden, formal herb garden, demonstration bed, wisteria garden, and an allée. Here are five good reasons to get outdoors at Gamble: Enjoy a new view, Notice what’s in bloom, Ditch the tech (for a bit), Relax and re-center, Take a breath of fresh air.

Come enjoy Gamble Garden, operated by a small staff and a legion of volunteers for the enjoyment of all.
