Detailed Description:

The Garden was started in the early 1990s. The water districts around the area wanted to create a conservation garden that showed people how to save water outdoors (the early 1990s brought a multiple year drought in the area). Even though the land was put aside, it wasn’t until 1999 that the Garden opened to the public.

Slowly over the years, the Garden has grown to include many different exhibits and types of gardens. Gardens and exhibits include a meadow area, a turf comparison area, a succulent garden, a container garden, a white plants garden, a vegetable garden, a butterfly garden, a compost exhibit, a sensory garden, irrigation area, a children’s discovery trail and more.
