South Bay Botanic Garden
Although South Bay Botanic Garden was officially established in January of 2008, its history really began in 1974. As a new college horticulture program, the garden started as an empty field, one greenhouse, and no plants. However, through the efforts of countless students learning the skills of planting and hardscape installation, the garden has grown into a park-like setting of hundreds of different varieties of plants.
