We love children in the gardens, especially when they want to take rose petals home
Watch our gardens grow! Our National Gardens now represent 32 counties in California
Thank you to Weeks Roses in Kern County for offering to donate rose bushes for the gardens.

To visit the Garden, enter El Camino Memorial Park on your left from Carrol Canyon Rd. Drive past the lakes and park in the general parking lot to your right (just past the flower shop). From the flower shop, cross the street and continue up the lawn (past the large white Madonna statue) toward the back of the canyon. For those who have difficulty walking, we do have a golf cart to assist you from the street to the Garden. Simply notify one of the Garden volunteers (identified by wooden GOI nametags) if you need transportation assistance.
