The Central Park Gardens are located in Davis' award-winning Central Park, home of the Davis Farmers Market. The gardens were established on the western side of the park along B Street in the early 1990s as part of a major park renovation and expansion project. Planted by volunteers at that time with roses, herbs, and drought tolerant perennials and shrubs, the gardens subsequently declined from lack of maintenance.

A volunteer effort has been underway since spring of 2006 to bring new life to the gardens. Volunteers from the UC Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners and the [WWW]Davis Farm to School Connection are partnering with the City of Davis to coordinate the renovation of the gardens and improve their long-term maintenance. The goal of the project is to create beautiful demonstration gardens and engaging educational programs that will motivate home gardeners in the region to adopt more sustainable gardening practices. The gardens will also serve as a place for garden-based children's activities and family programs.
