California Scenario was created by Ismau Nagushi. You should visit during the day and in the evening. You will have a different experience. Each design element creates an ecological environment that is representative of different regions in California. The stack of stones is Ode to...More
This is a small but beautiful work of art that I fear is often overlooked. It's a fascinating display of seven large sculptures set on a wide plaza. Each sculpture represents a different part of California, from the desert, to a river, to a redwood...More
This is a very quiet and contemplative area and convenient to the hotels and restaurants along Bristol and Anton. We walked over here following dinner at Claim Jumpers across the street.
As the name implies, the garden is divided up into different areas representing different...More
Just across the bridge from South Coast Plaza you can enjoy a nice quiet spot. The Isamu Noguchi sculpture is tranquil. While you enjoy the moment you can hear the distant roar of the 405 freeway. Good times!
If you happen to be near South Coast Plaza and love Noguchi, or sculptural landscape, or just a very different space to contemplate, this is a treasure. I live a few miles away and visit every few years. On the same order (to me) as...More
As some reviews have commented, this garden is difficult to find as there are no indications at all where it is. Luckily, we came here on a Sunday and drove around trying to locate the garden. Please note, that it is behind the Comerica office...More
I had heard of this place before, but never knew exactly where it was. After dinner at TGIF we figured it's gotta be around here close so we asked a couple people. One had no idea and the other said it was right by TGIF....More
It took us over a hour to find this garden the first we visited it. There was no signage that we could find. It is an exquisite piece of art - an extraordinary garden of sand, stones, water, trees and sculpture. Take a sweater or...More
Behind 611 Anton Blvd. in Costa Mesa is an utterly unexpected jewel, a 1.5 acre sculpture garden by Isamu Noguchi. The collection of sculptures is a representation of California using both symbolic and minimalist vocabularies. There are mountains, rivers, cacti. This land was used for...More

I don't think that it has a formal address. Plug 3400 Bristol Street, Costa Mesa, CA 92626, into your navigation system, or just type in "intersection of Paularino and Bristol in Costa Mesa. Drive north. If you hit Baker, you are going the wrong way. Go over the freeway bridge. Look to your right. You will see mirrored buildings. California Scenario abuts a mirrored building. Turn right onto either Anton or the next street, but if you hit Sunflower, you've gone too far. Park as close to the mirrored building as you legally can and walk to the Scenario.
