The San Diego River Garden in Mission Valley

Explore and Protect River Habitat at the Garden

The San Diego River Garden is in Mission Valley right at the edge of the River, and it showcases native varietals and low water use plants. But don’t expect only prickly succulents, this garden is sure to inspire with showy colors, fragrant blooms, and bird and butterfly attractors. You are certain to glimpse a few of the River’s wildlife inhabitants here, especially birds and lizards. No potable water, restrooms, or public parking are available at the garden at this time.

This site used to be a vacant area reserved for future use by the City of San Diego. But thanks to the City and the many volunteers, sponsors, groups that have come out to garden over the years, it is now much more attractive for the community!

Location: The approximate address of the River Garden is 3382 Camino del Rio N in Mission Valley.
