Cactus Garden information

The Arizona garden contains many cacti and succulents, and we hope to see many in bloom.  It was designed for Jane and Leland Stanford between 1881 and 1883.  The nearby Mausoleum, Angel of Grief, and surrounding arboretum are also attractive painting subjects.  Mausoleum information

The closest toilet facilities are at the Stanford Shopping Center or Cantor Arts Center.

Carpooling recommended. Parking in The Container Store lot close to the intersection of Quarry Road and Vineyard Lane is a good option.

Directions to Stanford Shopping Center for parking
From 101 take Embarcadero Rd West and drive about 2.5 miles across El Camino onto Stanford Campus. The road turns right and changes name to Arboretum Rd.  Continue about .5 miles, turn left on Quarry Rd, and
The Container Store is on your right.  Park as close as possible to the intersection of Quarry Road and Vineyard Lane (in front of the Container Store).

From 280 and Sand Hill Road driving east, turn right onto Vineyard Lane, and look for the The Container Store parking lot on your left near the Quarry Rd intersection.  Park as close as possible to the intersection of Quarry Road and Vineyard Lane (in front of the Container Store).

Cross Quarry at Welch Road and walk past the Stanford Center for Academic Medicine (on your left) until you connect with the trail.
