San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden

3450 Dairy Creek Road


To honor and preserve our connection with nature.

The Gem of the Morros

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 the only garden of its kind in the United States exclusively devoted to the ecosystems and plants of the five mediterranean climate regions of the world. Other components of the plan include 50 miles of paved trails; restaurants and cafés featuring mediterranean climate cuisine; a 3,000-seat amphitheater; demonstration, meditation, and event gardens; an explosion of art; sustainable buildings for education and research; and creative modes of transportation to provide easy access to the inspiring views throughout the Garden’s 500-foot elevation change.
