The Hummingbird Habitat demonstrates to visitors the beauty of native and desert adapted plants in a shady and inviting garden.Plan your Desert Breeze Railroad visit and explore what else you can see and do in Chandler using our Chandler online travel planner.
The garden features more than fifty species of plants that not only survive on very little water but also are attractive to hummingbirds and other wildlife.
One of the first things you will notice when entering the garden are the two large iron sculptures by artist Joe Tyler. One piece is an archway with a hummingbird collecting nectar from a flower and the other is a large tree that serves as a shade structure to the surrounding seating area. These sculptures were selected by the Chandler Arts Commission.
Chandler High School art department students designed and constructed the ceramic tile artwork on the entry signage. The Hummingbird Habitat is a beautiful space to learn about desert plants and is a point of pride for Chandler residents.
Desert Breeze Railroad reviews
I was visiting friends in Chandler and they took us to this park. Wow! One thing I really like about the area is that there are kid-friendly parks practically on every block. But Desert Breeze park and the railroad are definitely well above average. The railroad is such a fun addition for kids to enjoy, and not to mention there is also a carousel they can ride too. And there are so many other great features about this park. A large, covered play structure for kids, a splash pad (opens in April), many swings for both kids and babies/toddlers, and a large pond great for fishing or feeding ducks. Also seems there are plenty of covered, first-come-first-serve picnic areas with tables where you can have parties or barbeques.
Fun to let the kids ride the merry go round and the train ride but at $3 a ride per person we only did it once. You need to buy tickets to ride them. They have a discount option, $25 for 20 tickets) or yearly pass ($70 for one adult and one child). Probably the fastest merry go round I've ever seen, kids loved it. They also have a stand for food, drinks and snacks. Nice to have that option at the park
