The Point Loma Native Plant Garden

Explore and Care for Native Plants in a Beautiful Garden

The Point Loma Native Plant Garden is a hidden gem that features many rare and endangered native plant species that are found along the San Diego River. Some of the plants in the collection are not found naturally anywhere else in the world but in our region. Located just uphill from the San Diego River estuary, this garden also features a native plant nursery where we nurture seedlings grown from seed and cuttings harvested on site. Come visit the garden and nursery for inspiration for your own native plant installation in your yard, patio or porch!

The garden is part of the City of San Diego's Collier Park West between Ocean Beach and Point Loma. There are no restrooms available at the park or garden.

We welcome you to join us! Experienced and non-experienced gardeners needed.
