Visit the Gardens and enjoy an experience that includes displays of rocks and minerals from the collection of Harrison Yocum. See them incorporated into the gardens and exhibits, and find some for sale in the gift shop as well! Enjoy a meal in the café and visit Butterfly Magic (seasonal) and view the local art in the gallery. This is truly the jewel of Central Tucson.

Great place to discover many unusual plants growing in a desert climate!

My brother and I thoroughly enjoyed touring the gardens and discovering many plants that we had seen in the desert. The Cafe had unusual, delicious regional foods.

Great butterfly exhibit. The gardens are peaceful and serene. The gardens are different depending on the time of year.
