The Rice Canyon Demonstration Gardens are located in the Rice Canyon Open Space Preserve across S.  Rancho Del Rey Parkway from Discovery Park in Chula Vista.  The garden has a wonderful collection of cactus and succulents on display all around the small parking area that is the trail head for a 2 mile hiking path that goes through the canyon. There are tables for a picnic and benches where you can sit and enjoy the view.
