Living in Southern California can make it hard to realize that it’s Fall!

The temperatures are still relatively mild and the color changes in our trees are hard to spot.  Wouldn’t it be great to make fun of fall memories celebrating the season at the Great Park Botanic Gardens? We already have the Great Park Balloon sporting a jack-o-lantern face to welcome visitors to enjoy the fall festivities at the future gardens.

Just imagine…….

Strolling thru the scarecrow trail to admire scarecrows that are crafted by schools, local artists, local businesses and organizations all competing for the most creative scarecrow prize.  What a fun way to bring together the community!
Admiring and watching in awe the masterful carving of local artists at a pumpkin carving contest and borrowing some carving design ideas for your own pumpkin.
Sipping on some seasonal ciders and Autumn ales while strolling through the garden listening to live music.
Enjoying a spooktacular weekend of trick-or-treating, fall-themed arts and crafts, showing off your child’s Halloween costume, and searching for the perfect pumpkin in the pumpkin patch.
Planning your spring garden and buying daffodil, tulip, freesia and ranunculus bulbs to plant now to enjoy their beautiful colors in your garden.
So many fun Fall memories waiting to be made at the Botanic Gardens! Help us make these dreams a reality and see how you can get involved.
