Medicinal Garden

Plants and Herbs used by the Native American tribes of Southern California: the Chumash, the Tongva, and the Cahuilla.

A unique collection of some of the most important-and common-medicinal plants of Southern California. Presented clearly with color coded signs identifying the
different plants, including descriptions of how they were used by tribal healers-called ‘shamans’-for thousands of years.

Located inside Ballona Discovery Park, in Playa Vista, CA., adjacent to Loyola Marymount University and the 600 acre Ballona Wetlands.

BALLONA DISCOVERY PARK IS A PROJECT OF 3 PARTNERS

First view on right after entering the Ballona Discovery Park.

In Spring-Summer you will be greeted by a glorious field of Poppies.

The Welcoming sign tells the story of the creation and recent restoration of garden.

This Chumash tradition was our guiding light.
