Played a concert here recently and took some time to walk around and look the gardens over prior to the concert. This is a stellar idea for showing local flora and fauna.

At Cuyamaca College. Great ideas for the yard. So peaceful just walking around the area. Nearby is the museum that has a lot of El Cajon History. Worth the visit.

This place is just fantastic. So much beauty in a small place. AND, they can teach you so much about water conservation (awesome info in this time of drought/dryness). I went to a faculty gathering there, and the setting is romantic enough for a wedding. Seriously fabulous. :)

What a wonderful setting it was, and you would be surprised with what it has to offer and how fun it can be! The wedding was around Halloween with a 'harvest' theme, and the weather was absolutely gorgeous! I totally recommend The Water... More

The Water Conservation Garden is a great place to take children as well as adults. The garden has great graphics that tell you about different aspects of water conservation. I would like to see more emphasis placed on native California vegetation, but the emphasis on conservation is a good start.

Beautiful places to wander and sit and listen to the birds. Well designed and well tended gardens demonstrate the full beauty of southern California. Enjoy!

There's a couple of reasons why I love this garden. First, it's free. Second, it's beautifully landscaped...beautiful views from every angle. You see birds, insects, and lizards. They have things for children to learn and play...they are even building a butterfly garden. You learn how to save money on your water bill, how to garden for the Socal climate, how... More

We have been here a few times. This garden is dedicated to using landscaping that thrives in our low rain area.
