Located just southeast of the Lomita City Hall building and adjacent to the parking lot is the Demonstration Garden.  The City’s Demonstration Garden was constructed with a grant from West Basin Municipal Water District and the use of matching city funds.   The goal for the garden is to show a redesigned landscape utilizing efficient irrigation and drought tolerant plants in order to reduce water use and eliminate run-off. This garden has reduced water usage by over 70% and features plant identification signs for each type of plant.  These plants are affordable and readily available at local nurseries.   To see additional photos of the Drought Tolerant Garden click here.  

Located across the street from the Lomita Railroad Museum, this 0.17 acre passive open space area contains two box car displays, picnic tables and park bench.
