Visiting the Not-So-Secret Garden

Posted By on Thu, Jul 26, 2012 at 3:00 PM

While living in Tucson for the past three years I would say I have not taken full advantage of what the city has to offer. I had heard about Tucson’s Botanical Garden from a friend and thought I would take a trip and explore it myself.

I would suggest going early in the morning and bringing a water bottle along the way because with summer temperatures it can get pretty hot.

As I make my way through the trail, I am surprised by the massive amounts of green I see. The garden has various aspects that are entertaining for the entire family, including the tropical green house, Children’s Discovery Garden, birdhouse garden with birdhouses made by local artists, sensory patios, zen garden and much more.

At the end of the trail I decided to head back into the gift shop where the Porter Hall Gallery is located. Local artist Valerie Galloway is featured in this months exhibit.

Some great events they have featured this summer you should check out:
Twilight Third Thursdays: every third Thursday during the summer they host an evening filled with art, music, food and drinks. The next third Thursday is August 16 from 5 to 8 p.m.. Public: $9 adults, $4 children, members $8, $3 children
Hot Fridays: enjoy the intensity of the hot summer at the botanical garden. July 27 and August 24 from 5 to 8 p.m. Admission is $8 for adults, with members getting in for free.
