What’s Growing on Here?

A new train station

Whimsy and wonder await when Descanso opens its new train station and model train area this July.  The model train area will include stations that are intricately handcrafted with natural materials, including twigs, bark, leaves, acorns, and pebbles.

Farmhouse at Descanso Gardens

Farmhouse at Descanso Gardens, our new restaurant, will combine the beauty of nature with the freshest locally sourced ingredients. Chef Richard Mead will bring his creative vision to Descanso in late 2024.

A new water feature in the Courtyard

The Courtyard pond is being removed for safety and conservation reasons. We will soon begin remodeling the Courtyard to accommodate the Farmhouse at Descanso Gardens restaurant, during this process we will install a new water feature. Stay tuned for details.
