    Tucson Botanical Gardens
    Located on the site of the historic Porter property, Reader’s Digest named Tucson Botanical Gardens as the BEST Secret Garden in America. Among mature trees and expertly cultivated foliage, specialty gardens such as the Cactus & Succulent Garden, Barrio Garden and Herb Garden highlight the diversity of native plants while offering a lush oasis in the heart of Tucson. Tropical butterflies from around the world are featured in the Cox Butterfly & Orchid Pavilion Oct.–May. Experience year-round tours, community events, classes, and art exhibits, as well as the creative, seasonal menu of Café Botanica. Now celebrating 40 years of living beauty, The Tucson Botanical Gardens is a unique gem not to be missed.

    Tucked away in mid-town Tucson, the Tucson Botanical Gardens is a 5.5 acre oasis of natural beauty, inspiration and desert education.

    Cafe & Catering Café Botanica is run by long time Tucson caterer and Gallery of Food owner, Kristine Jensen. The menu is inspired by the culinary traditions of the Sonoran desert and high-desert of Northern New Mexico. Kristine and her team are committed to using local, sustainable ingredients and gleaning from the Gardens when possible. All of the dishes served at Café Botanica are home-made from scratch, and prepared with love and imagination.

    Make sure to check the website for events and exhibitions.

    The Tucson Botanical Gardens promotes responsible and appropriate use of plants and water in a desert environment through education and demonstration and provides a place of beauty and tranquility for Tucson residents and visitors.
