Went with some dear friends to listen to a guitar performance. The plants were a beautiful sight, and the performance venue couldn't have provided a more pleasant outdoor musical experience. Bring your own chairs if your bottom can't handle cheap plastic chairs (or a pillow)!...More

Loved the trails and viewing the cactus and native plants. Loved the Children's Garden and the various sections for specific plants, beautiful statuary and art. The gift shop and Art display was impressive too.

Food is good and ambiance is better. You can make a day out there relaxing in the beautiful and colorful desert. It's very peaceful and the wildlife is all around you there. The museum and gift store are really nice as well.More

Nice little botanical garden. Lots of native and exotic plants. Easy walking and wheelchair accessible. Volunteers throughout the park to answer questions. Food at the grill is very good but sometimes a little slow when busy. They often have concerts and craft shows on site...More

I like the idea that you can choose to eat in the patio, inside or out back. It is a smallish menu, mostly sandwiches.

Yes. The trails are wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair, and there are ramps into the main building and restaurant. The gift shop would be too tight for a wheelchair, I think.
