Community Gardens banner

Parks and Community Services operates the Community Gardens located at 1825 Fifth Street, on the north side of Fifth Street between L Street and Pole Line Road. There are currently 116 rentable plots, as well as a Garden Center, Herb Plot, Perennial Plot and Donation Garden. Full plots are 18’ x 20’ and there are a few half plots.

The annual (January to December) rental fee allows the City to provide land, water and limited facility maintenance and administrative staff support to gardeners.

The Community Garden policies help provide a positive gardening experience in productively used garden plots, which become an asset to the community. By following the policies and guidelines, you show that you want to garden successfully in a community garden plot.
