Allan Memorial Grove
This grove is dedicated to A.M. Allan who worked to protect this cypress grove. It was given as a gift in memory of Allan and his wife after Point Lobos became part of the state park system in 1933.
Today, this grove is only one of two naturally growing groves of the Monterey Cypress trees in the world (the other being in Carmel Bay at Cypress Point). In fact, the original reason for acquiring this land was to protect these gnarled trees.
