With a mission to inspire people of all ages to connect with plants and nature, San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas features rare bamboo groves, desert gardens, a tropical rainforest, California native plants, Mediterranean climate landscapes, and a whimsical children’s tree house.

DPR owns parkland in the City of Encinitas that is leased and operated as the San Diego Botanic Garden, and DPR has completed design on a project to construct new administrative and horticulture buildings along the western perimeter of the garden for existing staff and maintenance needs. This project will also make improvements to the existing Lawn and Larabee Houses, which are at the center of the garden and currently accommodate horticulture staff and maintenance equipment. This project will improve functionality and provide better use for interpretation by visitors. The construction phase is underway and is expected to be completed in Fall 2020. See below for renderings of the upcoming buildings currently under construction.
