Attractions in Westwood
Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden
One of my favorite hidden spots in Westwood is the Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden at UCLA. This impressive 7.5-acre botanical garden has various plants, including California native plants, herbs, succulents, and tropical plants. The garden also features a variety of specialized collections, including a cycad collection, a fern collection, and a tropical fruit collection.
Connect With Nature in Westwood
Admission is free, and I love being able to stop by, take a walk, and connect with nature. Visitors can also attend free community workshops, guided tours, and workshops to learn more about the unique plants and ecosystems in the garden. The UCLA Mathias Botanical Garden in Westwood strives to elevate the global appreciation of plants and their linkages with the human experience through educational opportunities, pioneering research endeavors, and interactive outreach initiatives.
