The Garden Guide

Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens

The Alice Keck Garden is a fine example of a botanical collection planted with xeriscape plants for water efficiency. There is a sensory garden, koi pond and gazebo. The El Mirasol Hotel formerly stood on this site, occupying a whole city block. The land was donated to the city of Santa Barbara in 1975. Elizabeth Kellam de Forest was the landscape architect.
