The sculpture garden is beautiful in its intent and overall appearance. The one thing that saddened me was the extent to which vandals have defaced this memorial. I plan to return again and will investigate ways to help with its preservation.

The Garden of Gethsemane is an old Tucson treasure. It is definitely worth the visit. The grounds are in much better shape than I've seen them in a long time.

My family and I visited the Garden of Gethsemane in March. We found this garden so peaceful, a quiet place to reflect on our thoughts. It is a surprisingly tranquil place for being so close to Congress, a main street in Tucson. The garden was...More

I enjoyed this small hidden gem. It is a quick stop with an interesting back story. You can almost forget your busy surroundings here. I appreciate Tucson preserving these statues. It is across the street from Fina's Tree (Tucson's largest) which also has an interesting...More

The last time we visited the garden was in sad shape. I'm happy to say that the upkeep is happening at a swift speed and the statues are being restored! For being right off the freeway, the garden is extremely peaceful and fabulous for reflection...More

We visited the Garden the other day and it is easy to find, just west of Interstate 10 on Congress Street, turn North on Bonita Ave. There is a paved parking area, well maintained grounds in a serene setting.

This small garden houses religious sculptures by Feliz Lucero. Some earlier reviewers said they were in disrepair but when we were there an artist was there working on them. The garden and sculptures were being maintained. I don't recall that there was an admission fee...More

Very inspiring. Very interesting history of its creation. Unfortunately, it has not held up well in the elements.

This attraction is difficult to find. It is just west of I-10 and is far removed from anything else tourism oriented. As another reviewer stated, it is in a state of disrepair. However, restoration is underway and is expected to be completed in a couple...More
