“a quiet oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

The variety of desert plants and the quiet atmosphere give a sense of retreat from the city and inspiration for gardening in a dry environment.

“Beautiful, my family loved this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

My 6 year old daughter really loved the area that has all of the large pieces that make you feel like an ant. Some of the man made items need repair, but it doesn't really take away from the beauty of this garden park.

“Wonderful area!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

We went to the botanical gardens with our combo pass. There was plenty of shade and very nice marked paths. We enjoyed being able to go at our own pace in the quiet gardens.

“Lovely Garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

My husband and I really enjoyed this garden. Lots of shade. The minature train garden was really cute and quite large. I loved the pond with the ducks and Canadian geese. The butterfly house was small, but well stocked with a big variety of butterflies and friendly workers. The price is reasonable and there is no parking fee. We didn't have time for the combo pass, but would love to go back again. You didn't have to do a lot of walking to see something. Just beautiful.
