Within seconds of walking through the entry gate, you’ll feel like you’re entering a magical wonderland.  The 4-acre property is filled with thousands of unique and beautiful plants and flowers, mostly under the shade of large trees.  The property also contains several goats, parrots, trails, sitting areas and an event venue.

Buena Creek Gardens is one of the neatest and most unique places in all of North County San Diego. You’ll definitely return after your first visit, either to enjoy on your own, or to show off to your family and friends. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
