Plan Your Trip Here Today!
When was the last time you visited the Desert Botanical Garden, if at all? Folks, are you ever in for a treat when you come here. Bring the whole family or come with a group of friends. Plan to spend the entire day here so you can enjoy all it has to offer. Nobody in your party will ever be disappointed.
What Is There to Do Here?
For one thing, you can explore one of several trails that meander throughout the gardens. You will see extraordinary plants and floral specimens that are native to our own Sonoran Desert. Not only will you be captivated by the sheer beauty and the myriad of colors and fragrances, but there is a lot to learn about them. You will find out how to work with nature. Then, of course, on a much smaller scale, you can get ideas for your own home gardens.
Stop At the Library
While you are here, make it a point to spend some time in the Schilling Library. Take a look at one of thousands of books on the premises, each focusing on a segment of the Arizona desert plant world. You will also discover books on our native wildlife, ethnobotany, guides to medicinal plants and so much more.
Are You Hungry?
If the answer is yes, there is no need to leave the Gardens. Instead visit Gertrude’s restaurant or, when the season is right, dine outdoors at the Patio Café. Each one serves delicious food, offering the perfect dish for every taste. Check our website for their hours of availability.
