Marin Art and Garden Center





A nonprofit, Marin Art and Garden Center hosts 11-acres of relaxing landscaped gardens, oak trees, elm trees and California native plants. Filled with flora, this historic site features the Livermore Pavilion, a spacious indoor area with sliding glass doors that spills onto the Livermore Deck with cozy stone fireplaces and is edged by the Stratford Gardens. The Garden Room is versatile with French doors that open to a gorgeous, garden backdrop. The grounds are lush with a Rose Garden, featuring more than 100 varietals of radiant roses and a spectacular gazebo at the center of the rich green lawn. The Fountain Pond and Arbor complete the natural, park-like setting with stone and gravel pathways winding through the romantic setting.
