Virginia Robinson Gardens
The Virginia Robinson Gardens is a unique historic estate in Beverly Hills. Built in 1911, it was once the residence of retail giants Virginia and Harry Robinson (of the Robinson department stores). It now occupies an illustrious place in the city’s history as the first luxury estate built in Beverly Hills.
Located behind the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel, the beautiful six-acre property contains a breathtaking display garden, mansion and pool pavilion. In addition, it is a dynamic location for photo shoots with dramatic settings such as the awe-inspiring Australian King Palm Forest, the bucolic Rose Garden and the tranquil Italian Terrace Garden.

CHILDREN'S FIELD TRIPS
Virginia Robinson Gardens offers a fun, interactive science-based learning experience for elementary school students, grades three and four. Children will learn by finding, identifying, tasting and smelling plants they discover in one of our six botanical gardens. They will then have an opportunity to examine these plant species under a microscope and learn how to cultivate and nurture these plants in a garden of their very own.
