About Desert Bontanical Garden, Phoenix

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.

  • Great views. It's a little hot during the day but if you come in the morning it's fine. Tons of flowers and plants! In April, some of the cacti are flowering and they are beautiful. The butterfly exhibit was incredible and a great get away from the heat. More than 2000 gorgeous butterflies in an interactive exhibit. Would recommend to any visitor in the anywhere and if you're a student, show your ID for $10 off!

  • I really liked it . You think that living in the desert would mean you've seen everything. The way everything was arranged gave the desert a fresh new feel. It was super weird to have a wedding photo shoot happen while walking around but hey! Good for them. Would I pay $25 to go? No way. If you a resident, get a library card and get passes.

  • We attended the Luminaria Festival in December 2016, the week before Christmas. It was absolutely enchanting. We had difficulty choosing among the various musical performances, and enjoyed each one. Being able to sit in one of the courtyards and enjoy a beverage and snack while listening to beautiful live music was a lovely conclusion to our evening there. I'd like to return during the day to see the plantings more clearly in daylight.

  • Awesome place to explore! I had no idea the desert had so many different types of plant life. This place offers a ton of great classes, concerts and other entertaining events. We also visited the butterfly sanctuary which was really interesting. Definitely make sure this place is on your list if you are visiting the Phoenix area.

  • Wear comfortable walking shoes & bring a camera & water. Many workers/volunteers around to answer questions. Great opportunity to see desert wildlife. I particularly liked the Butterfly House - watching so many colorful butterflies flitting around. Best to arrive in the morning if it’s going to be a hot day.
