Turtle Bay Exploration Park is a 300-acre campus along the banks of the Sacramento River with educational and entertaining activities and experiences that interpret the relationship between humans and nature.

The gardens feature 20 acres of Mediterranean climate display gardens, a children’s garden, medicinal garden, and two beautiful and unique water features.
