Great place to walk and see wonderful examples of arid landscaping and natural flora. There are numerous places that are shaded. We really enjoyed the walk through the park. Recommended for people who enjoy nature.

Lovely well marked trails thru various desert environments. The art exhibits displayed din the garden are appropriate and blend well with the plants. I enjoyed the colored pencil pictures and the other art mediums as well. Definitely a place to visit...

A delightful bistro! Breakfast and lunch. Eat in or "en plein air". patio dining is sunny, set in a lovely garden, available year-round. Vegans, vegetarians or carnivores will find choice, inventive menu items that change periodically. Excellent service. Moderate prices.

Tohono Chul is a regular destination for us - a great breakfast in the cafe's hummingbird garden and an hour stroll in the park.
