Located near the Rio Grande, the Botanic Garden transforms the nearly 40 acres of marsh land into conservatory for both native and exotic plants ranging from desert to tropical. It features Spanish-Moorish Garden, Rose Garden, Pollinator Garden, Mediterranean Conservatory, Saguaro Patio, Vineyard, Orchard, Vegetable Field, Butterfly Pavilion etc. One of its attractions are the Ceremonial Garden that is suited to host wedding ceremony, and the Children’s Fantasy Garden that reminded me Honey, I Shrink the Kid attraction at Disneyland.

The newly added Heritage Farm and Japanese Garden added more diversity to the area. One could really take a easy summer stroll along the shaded pathway and spend all day at the park.
