CLUFF VISTA PARK -
Cluff Vista Park is a little piece of nature right in the city of Ojai. Through a series of community meetings, Van Atta Associates and Ojai landscape architect Tom Bostrum worked together to create an oasis of themed California native gardens, including a hummingbird garden, a butterfly garden, a deer grass meadow, and a sage scented garden.
The effect of the blazing Ojai sun is minimized by vine-covered, shady arbors and by soothing water, which flows from an origin fountain to a waterfall and into a riparian plant community. This pocket-sized gem of a park is especially beautiful at sunset with its spectacular views of the Topa Topa mountains during their famous “pink moment.”
