Central Garden

The Getty Center's Central Garden is in the center of the facility. Robert Irwin is the artist that designed the garden. There is a walkway lined with trees and a natural ravine that lead visitors around the 134,000 sq. ft design. There is a stream around the walkway that goes through a range of plant varieties and descends to bougainvillea arbors in a plaza.

The planning was begun in 1992 for the Central Garden by Robert Irwin. It is a key portion of the project for the Getty Center and opened during 1997. The Garden has changed as the plants have matured and are trimmed. The addition of new plants is ongoing. The plaza floor has "Always changing, never twice the same" which is a statement Irwin made carved in it.

The Getty Center where the Central Garden is found is located at 1200 Getty Center Drive in Los Angeles, California. N. Sepulveda Boulevard is where the main gate is located and it's the Getty Center's only access. The center offers an art collection and amazing views. Those wishing to obtain additional information about the Central Garden and other facilities offered at the center should contact the Getty Center directly.
