As a result of the interest of a few citizens to conserve the ecosystem of the region, this large garden inside the Papago Park was set up. It was founded by the Arizona Native Cactus and Flora Society and opened for the public in the year 1937. At present the garden boasts of a collection of thousands of native, rare and endangered species of plants and herbs. The most remarkable species in here are the agave and cacti collections, especially the Opuntia Sub- Family.

This garden has been designated as the “Phoenix Point of Pride” and it conserves a variety of plant species from a number of ecosystems such as

  • Mesquite Bosque
  • Semi Grassland
  • An Upland Chaparral

Most of the plants here are of desert climates and the others that belong to less extreme climatic conditions are conserved in shady areas. The other important collections include an Australian Collection, a Baja California Collection, etc.

  • Serene place to visit! My mom and I got tickets to visit the Botanical Garden and it's by far one of my favorite memories I've had with her. It was a beautiful day and we made some really priceless memories. We loved the butterflies, and all of the wonderful arrangements of flowers! My mom is a professional gardener, and she absolutely fell in love with this place. We are both from New York, and we are used to being surrounded by flowers, and lavish wildlife. The Desert Botanical Garden was very much like an oasis. Truly breathtaking!

  • I have visited this garden a number of times and started out early in the morning and stay all day. One design I found interesting was their use of metal rebar from a gazebo to signs, gates, bridge, etc. What a creative and low cost idea. I always go along with the tour at this garden because the information is so interesting. The cactus are landscaped beautifully throughout the garden with sculptures positioned around the garden that seem to mimic the landscape in bright colors. During my day, I take the tour, walk the entire garden taking photos, set on stone benches next to running water to rest, read all the educational signs, eat lunch at the cafe, visit the library, look at botanical photography displays, talk to staff and ask questions and visit the gift shop (good thing they sell wide brim hats!).

  • This is a great place to come when the weather is cool. They offer great concerts, events and artist exhibits throughout the year. The staff/volunteers are friendly and the garden is very well kept. Keep an eye out for small critters, lizards, birds and bugs.

  • This is my favorite place to perform weddings. They offer small 20 guests wedding up to 200+. Price ranges can go from exceptionally affordable for a wedding with off site reception to full on opulent wedding with reception. Peak seasons wedding book out far in advance. Photos are majestic.

  • Beautiful gardens well taken care of. Butterfly exhibit was outstanding and worth going just for that. Lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes. Staff friendly and knowledgeable.
