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.
