Swimmer 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
