Tohono Chul, Tucson Reviews

  • I went on a Sunday morning and strolled the gardens in about an hour. It was beautiful and serene. I've never been to a garden where there are signs warning you of active rattle snakes. How exciting! There's also a really wonderful shop selling a well curated selection of succulents and cactus. I really enjoyed the quilt show at the gallery as well and the cafe! It was pretty hopping for Sunday brunch but they have opened a part of the garden beyond the patio which was quiet and pleasant. The service was friendly but the croissant they served me was on the stale side and I've never been served a croissant sliced in half. The atmosphere and the coffee and the staff made up for it.

  • My only regret about this place is that I didn't adequately plan to spend enough time here (and without my kids)!!! Before I ever visited Tucson, Arizona, I just imagined that it would be a bunch of empty desert space other than a few buildings and maybe some Urban and rural areas. But, since moving here in the summer of 2017, I've actually seen a lot more "life" here than I originally anticipated. In the process I developed a greater appreciation for the unique beauty here. Tohono Chul Park is a place (among several others) where you get to see a lot of that "life" and beauty. But I really like this place. There is a lot more to also see about the awesome restaurant that is on the premises, however it looks like there is another place on Google reviews to do that. So I will post about that place there. Anyhow looking at the park and seeing the different types of plant life than what I'm used to really highlights the beauty of Tucson and the desert. This is a must see place for any visitor.

  • Wonderful "oasis" in the desert. Probably the highlight of our Tucson sojourn. Well marked trails with plaques explaining the plant life. The helpful docents readily answered questions and gave good insights. Nice gift store and a good selection of plants for sale in the nursery. This is a great place to visit and learn about desert plants, birds and animals

  • It's surprising how many different attractions and habitats they've included on the site. Everything from a bistro to a gallery to gardens to desert trails. If you visit more than once, it's probably cheaper to become a member. I'd give it 5 stars, but $13 for one adult for one day is too much for my budget. But I suppose they need the funds to maintain everything.

  • A wonderful place to walk, view beautiful scenery and just relax. Love the bistro. Love the gift shop. It could have more children's exhibits. A gorgeous place. Get there early when it's not hot.
