Tucson Botanical Gardens


category : Botanical Gardens
Tucson Botanical Gardens This beautiful oasis in the heart of Tucson was originally the home of Bernice and Rutger Porter. Dating to the 1920s, the earliest buildings on the property were constructed of adobe bricks made right on site. True to the vision of Mrs. Porter, Tucson Botanical Gardens is a place of beauty, inspiration and education about the natural world.

There are 16 different gardens within 5 1/2 acres of grounds representing a variety of gardening traditions and botanical themes. The Gardens offer programs and classes for adults on a broad array of topics, from gardening for newcomers to composting to botanical art. The children's educational programs are offered to school groups and families with the premise that learning should be fun, hands-on and curricula-based. Gift shop and tours.
