Griffith "Festival of Gardens"

Each year up to 10 private gardens are open to the public, ranging from small cottage gardens to stunning large acreage creations. The Gardens of Griffith reflect the joy and pleasure the community gains from creating stunning displays. The Mediterranean climate provides optimum conditions for the Griffith Festival of Gardens. The main street is lined with citrus sculptures based on the famous Menton sculptures of France.
