Special Treat!

Redwood City’s Native Plant Demonstration Garden will be featured as #5 on this year’s 15th Annual Going Native Garden Tour, free to the public, on Sunday, April 23rd. Our Native Plant Demonstration Garden was converted from turf by Redwood City Parks Department staff and community volunteers who attended one of a Redwood City’s Water Conservation Program workshops on converting turf to water efficient landscapes. The result of their work is a garden that's educational, supports wildlife, and uses a lot less water.
