South Coast Botanic Garden Professional Review and Guide

"The South Coast Botanic Garden, owned by Los Angeles County, was developed on a sanitary landfill site in 1959. The 87-acre garden includes plant collections representing southern Africa, Australia, and the Mediterranean. There is a large man-made lake with an island, which supports an abundant bird population. Within this impressive garden is a rose garden with more than 1,600 hybrids that circle a large fountain, a children’s garden with a miniature enchanted house, a gazebo, an arched bridge over a fish pond, a succulent and cactus garden, herb and vegetable gardens, a volunteers’ garden, a water-wise garden, and a fucshia garden. There is a canyon with a channel of water winding through riparian and marshland habitats, a woodland of pines and junipers, coastal redwoods, flowering fruit trees, palm trees, and over 50 species of eucalyptus trees."
