Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden

A visit to the Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden offers an introduction to plants native to the California islands, including a few species particularly associated with Catalina Island, such as the Catalina ironwood tree and the rare Catalina mahogany. You'll also find the Wrigley Memorial here—a Spanish-style mausoleum inlaid with bright Catalina tile, it has a grand staircase made of local blue flagstone rock. The Wrigley family commissioned the monument and gardens in the 1930s, and the chewing-gum magnate himself, William Wrigley, Jr., was buried here—but only briefly, as his remains were later moved to Pasadena.
