The Humboldt Botanical Gardens (18 ha / 44.5 acres) are at the southern edge of Eureka, California, United States. The Gardens are near the South Bay portion of Humboldt Bay on the north side of College of the Redwoods. Grading and site preparation for the Gardens began in August, 2003. The garden opened in 2006, with more development completed by 2008. The Humboldt Botanical Gardens offices are located in downtown Eureka.

The Gardens were first organized in 1991. Its Lost Coast Brewery Native Plant Garden has an emphasis on the Humboldt region, but includes plants in the geographic area from the Rogue River to the north shore of San Francisco Bay, and inland to a north-south line running from Vacaville through Williams, Redding, Yreka, Medford, and along the Rogue River to its mouth. The Gardens are particularly interested in maintaining complete native conifer, Iris and Lilium occidentale (western lily) collections.

  • Wonderful grounds! We were there for an outdoor concert. While there, we saw a fantastic Monarch butterfly exhibit. The rose garden and all the rest of this peaceful place are well with a special visit.
  • this place is a treasure in many ways. The reason for the three star review is the lack of accessibility on the trails and the lack of signage in the gardens.I walked by several flowers that I would have loved to know the name of but there were no signs available.the garden is large and fine if you can walk but if you're in a wheelchair or pushing a stroller you will miss most of it. I think that needs to be fixed.
