Welcome to the City of San Jacinto’s new Estudillo Heritage Park Water Conservation Education Garden.
The new water-wise garden has been designed with water conservation in mind. The purpose of this garden is to educate our community about the beauty and water saving benefits of planting drought tolerant and native California plants. The garden was designed primarily with California native plants. However, there are also plants from around the world that thrive in our Southern California climate.
The plants used represent many countries, including Mexico, South America, the American Southwest, the Mediterranean, South Africa and Australia. Due to the historical nature of the park, we thought it important to identify the origins of the plants.
The garden is roughly divided into climate regions; Desert, Inland Chaparral, Coastal and Mediterranean or Southern Californian. These divisions are not strict and plants are aesthetically mixed throughout the Garden. However, the plants are grouped by similar water needs. Each of these areas is irrigated differently to demonstrate the various ‘Water Wise’ ways to irrigate gardens in our region.

The Garden grounds are open the same schedule as the San Jacinto Museum (Fri-Sun 11am-4pm) and staffed by community volunteers. Please call (951) 654-4952 for further information and to verify hours.
