We strive to be a treasured local, national, and international resource; to delight, educate and inspire people to embrace nature, outdoor recreation, community interaction, celebration of the arts, creative endeavors, and health and wellness.

The San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden is located near the Pacific Ocean on the Central Coast of California. When the Master Plan is complete, our 150 acre garden will be exclusively devoted to the ecosystems and plants of the five Mediterranean climate regions of the world. We serve the people of San Luis Obispo County and visitors.
