Tucson Botanical Gardens Reviews & Ratings

  • Such an amazing experience!! Probably should have come a bit earlier in the day to avoid some of the heat, but we still really enjoyed everything. There are so many areas to explore and it's so easy to get lost in it all (in a good way!) They also had an amazing gift shop! We spent about 3 hours there going through the gardens but you could easily go through everything in 1-2 hours. Highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys plants or just spending time in nature.

  • For a moderate size botanical garden, the Tucson Botanical Garden has a wide variety of plants and displays. Plan on three to four hours to fully explore and experience all the garden has to offer. Great staff. Lots of shaded areas. Convenient restrooms and water fountains.

  • Great family experience. We went on free admission day and was surprised by how big the gardens were. There is a huge variety of plant life and a very fragrant herb garden. I recommend going in the morning during the summer as we went in the afternoon and got overheated quite easily.

  • WOW, What a treasure! I have never been happier to write a review. The variety of cacti, trees and other plants was incredible. In addition to great service the volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable. I will definitely visit again!

  • Beyond beautiful. The garden is huge and there are sections with different themed plants ranging from tropical to desert. There's an adorable model old town with a train that is the absolute cutest. The butterfly exhibit was closed but I imagine that would not disappoint. There's plenty of wildlife to see as well. It's very quiet and relaxing, and a great place to go to relieve stress or take a personal photo shoot.
