About Our Nonprofit
Our Mission and Vision
Michael Bonfante is the park's creator and builder. It was his vision, love for plants and trees that inspired the park's design landscaping and attractions. Today we aspire to continue Michael's dream and park mission.
It's a place where kids can learn and grow, and where fun grows on trees! We have many educational programs available designed specifically with children in mind.
Become a volunteer, get a park membership, or donate to the park. Help us support learning disguised as fun.

Gilroy Gardens has a strong commitment to support our local community and are proud to support other nonprofits with ticket donations.
The park has come a long way since it's earliest days. From the recuing of the world-famous Circus Trees, to the opening of Hecker Pass...A Family Adventure and then finally opening as Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park.
