About Us: To educate and inspire through excellent exhibits and programs that promote water conservation and the sustainable use of related natural resources.”
The Water Conservation Garden has nearly five 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. Admission is free, and the Garden can be viewed on a self-guided tour, or through one of our programs.
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, while attending a fun family festival.
The Garden is supported by water district dues, and by memberships, donations, grants, facility rentals, and gift shop sales. In 2005, Friends of the Water Conservation was created to increase private support for the Garden.
Personal Experience: I love this place so much! Besides being free, there is so much to do and see here while being deeply inspiring on how we can be more conservative with water. I love gardens and being around plant-life in general. This place is such a pleasant stroll and perfect for the entire family! There is something so healing about going to places like this.
