Very simple landscaping with regional and local plants. Very limited shade, amazing funding for this place still exists. Park is located in the middle of westside el paso surrounded by businesses.

This desert botanical garden is absolutely beautiful. You can book an event there (ie. Wedding, promotion ceremony). The prices are affordable. If you are in El Paso for any reason, stop by, you won't be disappointed!

We arrived here the end of April, and were disappointed with how dead everything looked. There were weeds growing everywhere and it looked like it was under construction. The place didn't look like it was even open. Staff walked right by us, into the garden...More

Went back to the park for a spring visit. The botanical garden part is small but very nice and well maintained. The wetlands were somewhat dissapointing. . Not really a lot to see.
