Landa Gardens

A Public Garden For The Enjoyment Of All

The Landa Gardens project, located on a 5-acre site at the corner of Bushnell and Shook Avenue, began on June 1, 2007.  This project included the design and creation of an urban green space, including a pavilion, children’s areas, walking paths, seating areas and a community garden, with an endowment for its maintenance.

At that time 7,000 new plants were added to the site, including: 1,281 dwarf Mexican petunias, more than 1,000 Asian jasmines, almost 1,000 nandinas, 546 English ivy, more than 400 ferns and 346 boxwoods.

The landscape architect was Dave Shows & Associates and the contractor was Metropolitan Contracting Co.  The Valero Pavilion was designed and constructed by Carlos Cortés .

More than $1.5 million in donations was rasied by the Landa Gardens Conservancy to accomplish this ambitious project, which was finished on May 1, 2008.

There is something for everyone!
