  • Beautiful garden, perfect place for a sunny saturday morning, bring your ice coffee and favourite book!
  • Very nice well maintained garden showing native plants from the desert. Good place to take a break. The gardens are divided in several different sections featuring different plants species . Cactus garden, native plant garden, water features and even a small hueco. The garden always looks different depending on the season.
