Brand Park Memory Garden

Father Junipero Sera

It’s easy to see this rose garden through this rose colored glasses when standing by the statue of a small Indian boy happily held in the arms of Father Serra, founder of New Spain’s mission chain. Before the garden became a memory, this park was part of the original land grant of the San Fernando Mission. It was given to the city in 1920.
