What a great evening. The park was lighted up, as it should be for Christmas; festive, beautiful. Plenty of good eats and drink; entertainment to boot. Perfect way to get introduced to this gem of a park.

Had breakfast for my birthday at the Garden Bistro and it was excellent. I would highly recommend it and the service was great. There was four of us and all of us gave them the thumbs up. We will be returning soon.

This building used to be in the desert, Tucson has now encompassed it. A well conserved building with a garden centre, some stages and demonstrations.

Thank you for contacting us. If you were to take one of our tours it can take up to 45 minutes, but if you decide to go it alone it can be anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Does that help?
