Ventura Botanical Gardens was founded in 2005 by a small group of people from the local community who wanted to create a positive space for gathering within the city.

The gardens are located in Grant Park and offer over 160 species of plants, from the Mediterranean climate zone, to explore. This includes a pine forest of 60 trees, as well as a small eucalyptus forest. The gardens welcome volunteers, and offer miles of hiking trails, including demonstration trail which is one of the most beautiful. Hikers will encounter wildflowers and plants along this ADA accessible trek.
