We had a very nice time here, especially in the children's garden. I only gave it four stars because it was not as impressive as other botanical gardens I have been to, but it is still worth a visit.

A lovely desert garden with great gift shops and a wonderful restaurant. A very interesting place to showcase Tucson to out of town visitors.

The gardens at Tohono Chul Park are magnificent. The variety of desert plants and animals is incredible, and the volunteers are always ready to provide information.

If you want to plant a garden in the Tucson area, this would be an excellent place to get advice. I will be going back on my next visit to Tucson.

Charming Tucson-style dining room and outdoor patio. Food was great and the portions were generous. With your meal you get a 2-for-1 entry into the gardens. Well worth stopping.
