0D6A6088

Perfect gardens, peaceful settings, amazing landscape and colorful inspirational designs are what await you at the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show this Wednesday, April 5, to Sunday, April 9, at the San Mateo County Event Center.

The event center located at 2495 S. Delaware St., is a short walk from the Hayward Park Caltrain Station. Caltrain’s weekday and weekend schedule offers regular service to the station. SamTrans’ Routes ECR and Route 292 have bus stops near the event center.

This inspirational show showcases beautiful floral backyard gardens with scents of aromatic jasmine and freesia, serine trickling water fountains, rock sculptures and tree covered garden paths. More than 100 free how-to seminars and hands-on workshops.  Children can attend “Sproutopia-Kids Gardening,” featuring flower arranging, composting and buzz about bees.

Caltrain is a proof-of-payment system: tickets aren’t sold onboard trains but can be purchased at ticket machines at the stations. Passengers are encouraged to purchase a Day Pass at Caltrain ticket machines to avoid long lines. The pass is valid for unlimited rides within zone limits on Caltrain through the last train.

Parking at Caltrain stations costs $5.50 for the day, and permits can be purchased through ticket machines onsite. Paid parking rules are enforced throughout the day.

About Caltrain: Owned and operated by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, Caltrain provides commuter rail service from San Francisco to San Jose, with limited commute service to Gilroy. Caltrain enjoyed five years of consecutive monthly ridership increases, surpassing more than 60,000 average weekday riders. While the Joint Powers Board assumed operating responsibilities for the service in 1992, the railroad celebrated 150 years of continuous passenger service in 2014. Planning for the next 150 years of Peninsula rail service, Caltrain is on pace to electrify the corridor, reduce diesel emissions by 97 percent by 2040 and add more service to more stations.
