History of Tohono Chul Admission Policy:
On August 1, 2002, Tohono Chul Park began charging an admission fee. The Park is not owned by any governmental agency, so it does not receive regular funding from any governmental entity. The continuing demands of increased visitation and rising costs to serve those visitors made it necessary to implement a user fee. Thank you for supporting Tohono Chul Park!
