Midsummer in the Gardens. That’s what James Walden titled his book, a tale of faery adventures and misadventures that’s set in the Descanso Gardens. Until August 6th, a child-friendly map is available (free with the price of admission), that will lead children on a “story walk,” where they will discover “elfin magic all around.”

There is also the tram ride to take (times vary), the Boddy House to tour, a bite to eat at the Cafè Descanso which is operated by the Patina Group, and a gift shop that actually sells more than tourist trinkets (garden furnishings, gardening gloves and hats, original watercolors, and a large collection of garden and nature books for adults and children).
