Beautiful garden. Really big and entertaining, kids that love nature will love this place. And it's free the second Tuesday of every month.
It was beautiful but for $7 it's a pretty small park and lost of the areas were closed off.
So much to see here and such great landscaping. Eat or drink in the restaurant onsite—great selection of healthy delicious options!
Beautiful place. I highly recommend taking a stroll around the Desert Botanical Gardens--especially if you are not a desert native. So many beautiful plants.
Many closed paths .
This was one of my first stops in AZ. I planned on coming here, but was completely blown away by how gorgeous and awesome this place was. I didn’t get to see all of it, but only a couple parts of it were closed. You wouldn’t know it though. I spent two hours walking around right before sunset. The best part is that it was super quiet and not crowded at all. Definitely recommend. Not to mention all the little creatures roaming around.
Visiting the second week of April was magical, there were so many cactus in bloom. Amazing!
Such a beautiful garden in the middle of a city. A must go for birders! We saw a greater road-runner, hummingbirds, gambel’s quail and much more! The butterfly exhibit was also quite awesome.
