About The Tucson Botanical Gardens

Located on the site of the historic Porter property, Tucson Botanical Gardens (TBG) is a five and a half acre collection of 20 gardens in the heart of Tucson, Arizona.

A true urban oasis, Tucson Botanical Gardens was selected #4 in USA Today’s 10Best Botanical Gardens Readers’ Choice Awards, 2 years in a row. 20 curated gardens including the Cactus & Succulent Garden, Barrio Garden, Children’s Garden, Herb Garden, and many more, showcase a diversity of plants both native and those you wouldn’t expect to see in the Sonoran Desert. Tropical butterflies from around the world are featured in the Cox Butterfly & Orchid Pavilion from October through May every year. The Gardens offers rotating art displays, community classes, events, and international exhibits. Dine in the shade of the mesquite trees at Edna’s Eatery, offering refreshments, breakfast, and lunch. Event services are also provided for groups, weddings, and social gatherings.

The Tucson Botanical Gardens are located at 2150 N. Alvernon Way, Tucson, AZ 85712.
