PLEASE READ ENTIRE DESCRIPTION BELOW, INCLUDING CONFIRMATION OF RESERVATION AND PAYMENT THROUGH EVENTBRITE.
Come explore the exquisite historical gardens, pool pavilion, and mansion of Virginia and Harry Robinson, founders of Robinson's department stores. Their home and gardens were the site of many legendary Hollywood parties, and the Robinsons hosted such luminaries as the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Marlene Dietrich, and Fred Astaire. Their neighbors were Glenn Ford, Lillian Disney and Elvis Presley. The estate is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The docent-led tour lasts 90 minutes. Wear flat shoes. There are stairs to climb.
There are a few parking spaces at the gardens, and then down the hill on Crescent Drive. PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON ELDEN WAY. Virginia Robinson Gardens wants to keep their neighbors happy!
A donation will be made to the Friends of Robinson Gardens as part of our private tour fee.
ADULTS ONLY. Attendees must be 18 or older. NO PETS.
