About us


The Water Conservation Garden has nearly six acres of displays that showcase water conservation through a series of beautiful themed gardens, such as a native plant garden and a vegetable garden, as well as how-to displays such as mulch and irrigation exhibits. The Garden also features a native butterfly pavilion that is open spring and summer each year.

The Garden can be a learning laboratory for the dedicated gardener, a delightful place for an afternoon stroll, or a place to gather lots of information about water-wise, or California-Friendly® gardening.

“What a great way to spend an hour or two with the kids! The garden is not only beautiful & peaceful but educational as well. The staff was friendly & took the time to answer our questions about the many types of drought resistant plants they have on site. Highly recommended!!”
