    About Us

    The San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden is located near the Pacific Ocean on the Central Coast of California. Our 150-acre garden highlights the ecosystems and plants of the five Mediterranean climate regions of the world. We also have a vibrant 5 senses garden designed for children to experience nature through sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing!

    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; to showcase and support world-class botanical collections, horticultural research, plant propagation, local history, indigenous culture, and universal access to the outdoors.
