Landmarks Art & Garden
The Center had been untended and overgrown until a landscape architect and a brigade of volunteers, led by a team of Marin Master Gardeners, descended on it in 2000. Original redwoods, oaks, elms, walnuts, fruit trees and blooming hedges are now augmented by plantings of crabapples, weeping cherries, Japanese maples and colorful beds of azaleas, camellias, roses, lilacs, perennials and seasonal bulbs. A habitat garden features plants such as salvias, agastache, asclepias and ceratostigma. Curving brick walkways connect the terraced gardens, which step up the gentle hillside.
The Center also features a restored 1870s bunkhouse-farmhouse, a reminder of the days when Tiburon was a railroad terminal and this area was a working-class neighborhood.
Marin Master Gardeners host talks on horticultural topics at the Center. The talks are free and open to the public.
Address: 841 Tiburon Blvd., Tiburon
