Roseburg, Oregon has a hidden gem that many people don't know about. The Douglas County Master Gardeners have designed and created the most wonderful garden that has a variety of mini-gardens to delight just about anyone. Some examples include an interactive children's area, a Japanese garden, a butterfly garden and a vermicomposting area that explains how plants and worms work... More

This garden is a treat for all seasons, but of course between the months of May and October it's at its best. There is a garden for everyone here waiting for you to discover: Japanese garden; Children's Garden; Xeriscape Garden; Composting; Worm Bins; and much much more.

Enjoyed a walk through this small venue developed by master gardeners. Flowers, trees, shrubs, a Japanese Garden, and a children's area are featured within this small venue. We enjoyed a stroll and it's only a few minutes from I-5's exit 125.

If you would like to spend a relaxing time in a well maintained garden this is the place for you. It has been developed and maintained by the Douglas County Master Gardeners for the benefit of the public.
