About Our Nonprofit
After selling their Nob Hill Foods supermarkets, the Park was created and built by Michael and Claudia Bonfante and is designed to educate guests and to foster a greater appreciation of horticulture.
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.

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.
