The long-awaited homecoming dance is only two weeks away. Do you have a date but no idea of where to take photos? The Elizabeth F. Gamble Gardens, which boast herb gardens, rose gardens, a carriage house, a tea- room and a historic home, provides a place for students to take home- coming, prom and senior photos. Located at 1431 Waverley Street in Palo Alto, the gardens are within a 15-minute drive from Gunn.
The garden is open every day during daylight hours, while the house and office are open only on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free, but tours of the garden and buildings are available for groups of eight to 50 people for $10 per person. The facilities are available for rent for wedding ceremonies, receptions, business retreats or any other spe- cial events.
