Curving, curling, colorfully around a Point Richmond hillside with a sweeping view of the Golden Gate is one of the Bay Area’s most brilliantly vivid landscapes. Wave Garden is a mere 1/3 of an acre but it packs in hundreds of drought tolerant plants on its terraces, selected to appeal not just to us but to bees, butterflies and humming birds. Paths ribbon throughout the spectacular garden, graced with elegant iron railings and sculptures. 815 Western Drive. Open year round daily from 8-6. Free.
