See how the transformation of Grant Park has just begun... and our plans for the future!
Where is the Ventura Botanical Gardens?
The location of Ventura Botanical Gardens is Grant Park, in the foothills above City Hall in downtown Ventura. The first trail, the Demonstration Trail, is complete. Almost a mile long and six feet wide, with a decomposed granite surface and hand‐built stone walls, the trailhead begins at the upper parking lot behind City Hall at 501 Poli Street.
Planting for the Chilean Gardens has begun. When completed, the Chilean Gardens will be the largest in the world, outside of Chile. Grant Park is open from dawn to dusk.

Ventura County Star Readers’ Choice 2014 voted the Ventura Botanical Gardens as a Favorite Hike!
Our first installation, the Demonstration Trail, opened on October 20, 2012 with a big community celebration. We built that trail Foot by Foot. It's now a popular local hiking destination and everyone is welcome.
The first portion of the trail, from the upper parking lot behind City Hall, gently climbs 1400 feet to a viewing area overlooking the city and the ocean and is accessible by wheelchair.
