The Land Park Rock Garden was built in 1940 by workers in a New Deal program called the Works Progress Administration (WPA).
The Rock Garden is located inside William Land Regional Park.
Three-quarters of an acre in size with raised, stone lined beds that define meandering pathways. Since 1988, the plantings have been revived and are mostly Mediterranean including California natives. Not all plants are drought tolerant. There is an emphasis on foliage, form and flowers that last. Many plants are attractive to hummingbird, butterflies and beneficial insects. The garden has been carefully nurtured in that time by Daisy Mah and a group of volunteer gardeners.
