Galleta Meadows Estates
Among the barrel cactus and desert agave of Borrego Springs you’ll find a peculiar site: a herd of Gomphotheres and a 350-foot sea serpent slithering out of the sand. These, and 138 other larger than life metal sculptures, make up Galleta Meadows Estates, a sculpture Garden in the middle of San Diego’s Anza-Borrego Desert.
The late Dennis Avery, land owner of Galleta Meadows Estates in Borrego Springs, envisioned the concept of adorning his property with free-standing art. He commissioned Ricardo Breceda to create the metal sculptures that now sprinkle his property.
The best part about this massive outdoor sculpture garden is that it is free to the public.
