The Garden Guide

San Diego Botanic Garden

A botanical garden dedicated to the conservation of rare and endangered plants from around the world. The garden's original owner made special provision for the protection of quail birds and the garden was formerly known as Quail Botanical Gardens. The name was changed in 2009 in the hope that the new name would increase the perceived importance of the garden, expectations and consequently visitor numbers.
