Virginia Robinson Gardens - Proposed Operational Changes

The Virginia Robinson Gardens, located at 1008 Elden Way, is a publicly accessible botanical garden owned and operated by the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation.  The County has initiated the preparation of a Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) for a proposed project that would change the operations of the facility.  The proposed new operations are as follows:

  • Open to the public: Monday to Sunday (7 days a week), from 9:30 AM to sunset
  • Number of patrons: with advance reservations, up to 200 visitors per day, spread throughout the day for either tours, meetings, seminars/classes, events, or commercial filming (video only, no motion picture), or a combination of any of these activities
  • Types of events: in addition to existing events, consider family ceremonies such as weddings
  • Special uses: up to 24 special use events a year/approximately 2 per month

The County is seeking comments on the scope and content of the environmental analysis included in the SEIR, and will be accepting comments from November 16, 2021 to December 16, 2021.  Please direct all comments and questions to the County contact person:
