This garden was former city engineer's, Donald C. Tillman, dream to make a world class water reclamation plant that could not only process 80 million gallons of water a day, but could also be a place for meditation and relaxation. He fulfilled this dream in 1984 when the 6.5 acre garden was completed. See the tea room, the pond, native Japanese plants, and when you're done... stroll down to the road to the Sepulveda Basin Wldlife Reserve to learn about local birds, plants, and the history of the Sepulveda Dam.
