Gives the visitor an excellent feel for the plants of the southwest and has a Heritage Farm that is a nice place to visit. Mostly just a relaxing and beautiful place to see.

My friend and I did a guided tour of the Japanese Garden which was very informative. Unfortunately, our docent had a very soft voice and we had to strain to hear what she was saying. The grounds of the BioPark are very peaceful and it's...More

Amazing place. Loved the miniature train sets and beautiful gardens. Worth visiting and very relaxing. The bugarium was interesting. Not a bug lover but it is a must see when there.

The photographer needs to get permission ahead of time. It makes sense - they don't want the experience of the visitors to be interrupted by a personal photography session.
Are there still butterflies in the butterfly pavillion? I know that it is seasonal and I wanted to see them in the summer and it was not ready yet. I wanted to know if you still had butterflies there or not. Please let me know. Thank you. We really enjoy coming to the Botanical Garden. Karen Swanson
