Quick Links

South Coast Botanic Garden is an 87-acre public botanic garden containing over 200,000 plants and 2,000 species of plants from around the world. The garden was created on a sanitary landfill in 1959 by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors at the request of a Citizens’ group. Specialty gardens include the Japanese Garden, Fuchsia Garden, Children’s Garden and the 2-acre formal James J. White Rose Garden.  A man-made lake at the center of the garden attracts several species of waterfowl.  The garden is an oasis for over 200 species of birds that make their homes at the garden or just use the garden as a stop in their annual migration.
