The Sonoma Botanical Garden is a woodland experience where East meets West. Celebrating the beauty and importance of Asian and California native plants, the former quarry is home to a 25-acre Asian woodland garden, 22 acres of California native oak savanna, and a small Cabernet vineyard. Whether hiking up to expansive winter vistas, enjoying a leisurely walk through spring blooms, finding the perfect picnic spot in a shady summer oasis, or marveling at the riot of fall colors and textures, the Garden always offers delights for the senses. A different experience – every season, every time, for everyone.
Founded in 1987, the Sonoma Botanical Garden is deeply rooted in a love for biodiversity and commitment to nature conservation with meandering gravel trails throughout the Asian garden that welcome guests to immerse themselves among the trees.

This garden was recommended by locals we met at a wine tasting event in Sonoma. We stopped in on a Monday morning, it was very quiet and serene. Nice walk around the garden, beautiful asian plants...
We came here as a last minute substitute due to colder weather. It turned out to be quite the hidden gem. The hike goes all over the place and was a little hard to follow but we don’t mind walking so...
