A wonderful experience. I never knew that cactus grows 10-15 feet tall also.The garden has numerous varieties of cactus, from small pebble size to giant 15 footers. The sheer brilliance of cactus flowers is fascinating. The garden is well laid. A walk thru the garden is fascinating to say the least. Cameras are a must else you miss beauty in... More

A peaceful place, never seen varities of cactus and other flowers. A good spot for photoshoots. Do go if interested in exploring. The place did appear dry with a few things could have done better if well maintained

Theft cactus garden has some pretty exotic cactii, but the garden is not very use friendly. Limited hours for which it is open, means you cannot see their wonderful collection during the comfortable morning or evening hours. The place often has a desolate look much in contrast to the neighbouring town park that is always bustling with energy.
