Gardens of the World - Thousand Oaks

Gardens of the World at 2001 Thousand Oaks Boulevard is a 4 1/2 acre garden across from the Civic Arts Plaza in Thousand Oaks.  It is free and open to the public Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Gardens of the World is a gift from the Hogan Family Foundation.

GOTW is a stunning oasis of beauty, smack dab in the middle of Thousand Oaks. There is a huge bandstand in the center of the Gardens that is a perfect venue for outdoor music.  And the array of plants, flowers, waterfalls (including a stunning fountain that looks out toward the Civic Arts Plaza) and a serene koi pond next to an authentic Japanese Pagoda.

There is a Japanese garden, a French garden and waterfall (shown above), a Mission Courtyard, an English perennial and rose garden and an Italian garden.  A beautiful place to visit and relax for a bit, right in the heart of Thousand Oaks.  Also a great place for a picnic lunch, with plenty of tables, benhces and grassy areas. More info at www.gardensoftheworld.info or 805.557.1135.

I never promised you a rose garden...but here's a beautiful one to check out!Koi pond in the Japanese Garden area of Gardens of the WorldShaded picnic area at Gardens of the WorldMORE GARDENS OF THE WORLD IMAGES AT THIS LINK

Since 2003, Gardens of the World has hosted a great Jazz Series on Sunday afternoons in August in this traditional American Bandstand area.

The garden is lovely and a generous gift.
...I wish they would host though a green garden-waterwise, teaching garden to inspire us how to garden with little water and mulch yet be beautiful. This would be a gretaer gift! When I am there I see such waste-no walking on lawns yet so much waste-water, fertilizer. Show us the highest aspect of varius countries-the ones conserving and doing something about our environment-spiritually and well as physically.
... The Koi pond is most inspiring! Thank you.
