A visit to the gardens of Tohono Chul Park can last half an hour or become an all day experience. Our gardens demonstrate our goal of creating spaces of beauty that attract wildlife, utilizing native and adapted plants. The Park’s plantings have been designed especially to attract butterflies and hummingbirds, which will be seen throughout our gardens. On any given day, visitors might see lizards, birds, bunnies or occasionally even a bobcat or a rattlesnake somewhere around the grounds. Tohono Chul’s gardens are both planted and natural, in tune with the surrounding desert.
