“Take Older Visitors Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a gem in the intermediate desert of the Sonoran Desert. The trails are very short and are all easy. There are multiple ramadas and places to stop/sit. Lots of docents giving talks or special instructor times. Spring & fall see migration times of birds/butterflies and so extra special viewing. The spring flower times are gorgeous.

“A sanctuary in the city!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Love it!! An afternoon of good food and a serene setting with abundant beautiful plants and trees. Take this one for a great time out to relax and enjoy. Going through the park is a great learning experience and I love the plant sale center. I take all of my out of town guests there for lunch, it is like being in a peaceful garden.

“Wonderful exhibits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Both flora and art abound at Tohono Chul. When the gardens are in bloom, it is spectacular. And the art exhibits inside are always good and change quite often. Take advantage of their restaurant and enjoy a prickly pear margarita....... yum...
