Mission Statement

The Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden is dedicated to maintaining and enhancing our historic house and garden as an oasis of beauty and tranquility, providing a community resource for horticultural education, inspiration, and enjoyment.


The Main House was built in 1902 and the formal gardens first designed in 1908. At her death in 1981, at age ninety-two, Elizabeth Frances Gamble, granddaughter of the co-founder of Procter & Gamble, left her house and garden to the City of Palo Alto. Today’s Gamble Garden, a public place of beauty and civic pride, was born from this extraordinary gift - one that came with minimal guidance and no endowment to secure its future. Today, over 300 volunteers provide 35,000+ hours of work annually to maintain and restore the house and garden. The garden is open to the public, free of charge, every day.
