Garden of South West
   
 
 Just north of the Memorial Gardens is the expansive Garden of the Southwest. Pathways traverse a diverse array of native plants and vegetation, including cactus, succulents, grasses, trees and shrugs from throughout the Southwest U.S. many are plants Cesar knew growing up in the North Gila River Valley outside Yuma, Arizona, including Iron, Mesquite and Palo Verde Trees, and Ocotillo plants. Landscaping in this garden showcases native vegetation to demonstrate the need for conservation of water resources that are scarce in the Southwest.
