Our tour of the gardens at 1:30 PM after lunch at:

Gardens of the World

The Gardens of the World is an amazing 4 1/2 acre garden across from the Civic Arts Plaza in Thousand Oaks. California. Our member Regina's amazingly funny mom will lead a docent tour just for our group of 6 gorgeous gardens depicting vegetation, flora, and fauna from various areas of the world.

Here are some of the beautiful sights at Gardens of the World:

 

The Japanese Garden
The delicate balance and harmony of Asian culture has been beautifully captured in this peaceful setting surrounding an authentic Japanese Pagoda. Set in the midst of a Koi pond, encircled by bamboo and bridges, the Japanese Pagoda is a wonderful place to pause and savor a tranquil moment.

The French Garden & Water Feature
Magnificent, cascading waterfall greets you after you pass through massive iron entry gates. A main attraction of the Gardens of the World, the waterfall is the centerpiece of the French Garden, with its lovely parterres are low-lying hedges and flowers of vibrant colors, arranged into intricate designs.

The Mission Courtyard
The early history of the state of California and its famous Mission Trail can be experienced in the authentic Mission Courtyard. Colorful hand painted murals and a Spanish fountain grace the courtyard, surrounded by olive and citrus trees, creating a cool and soothing place to reflect on days gone by.

The English Perennial & Rose Garden
An explosion of color greets the visitor in these gardens with their vivid floral displays. Rose varieties of contrasting shapes and sizes burst into bloom seasonally, creating the ultimate Garden experience.

The Italian Garden
Take a stroll under a romantic grape arbor and enjoy our distinctive cypress trees, indigenous to the famed gardens of Italy. Running through the garden is a "chain" fountain inspired by historic Italian architecture.

 

The Bandstand
This authentic replica of an American Bandstand provides a stage for concerts in the park that can be enjoyed from the grassy amphitheater beyond. Nearby is a picnic area complete with tables and benches.

    I may have to cancel, I didn't realize it was at 11:45 am and I couldn't get there until 12:30 pm , perhaps I can just do the garden tour ?

    May 30, 2013

    • Louis

      Yes, the Garden Tour starts at 1:30 pm, so if you can get to the restaurant and eat in less than an hour, you can do both.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
