Welcome to the Nipomo Native Garden


The Nipomo Native Garden is a twelve-acre site located between Pomeroy, Camino Caballo and Osage in the community of Nipomo, California. It is a native botanical garden that features the plant communities endemic to the Nipomo Mesa and Guadalupe/Nipomo Dunes. There are trails through an established oak woodland as well as trails through the developing areas of the garden. Information kiosks inform visitors about the garden. A children's area is currently being developed to allow children a place to play in nature.

The garden is open every day from dawn to dusk. Parking is available off Osage Road. At the current time there are no restroom facilities available at the garden, so plan your visit accordingly.

The Nipomo Native Garden is a registered 501 C.3 non-profit organization. It is managed and maintained by a group of local volunteers.
