Big Springs Gardens: What to know before you go
June 28, 2013
Now that Big Springs Gardens has opened for the season, there are some good things to know before you visit.
The 30-acre site just beyond Sierra City on Highway 49 is the creation of Don Phillips. Visitors are invited to walk along two miles of groomed trails amid huge rock outcroppings and an old growth forest of cedars, firs and pines interplanted with thousands of flowering annuals, perennials, shrubs and specimen trees.
A package price, including admission, is $35 per person for the weekday buffet or $39 for the Saturday luncheon or Sunday brunch. Located three miles past Sierra City, the garden is open from 10 a.m to 9 p.m. Sundays. No outside food (picnics) are allowed, nor are dogs. It is a nonsmoking venue. A selection of premium beers and fine wines are available. Cash and checks are accepted, not credit cards.
Accommodations are available for weddings, birthdays or special occasions. Reservations are required, by calling 530-862-1333 or emailing email@example.com.
