Formerly known as the Quail Botanic Gardens, this nationally recognized botanic garden has been designated one of the “Top 10 North American Gardens Worth Traveling For” by the American Gardens Association.  

This is a 37-acre urban retreat, with four miles of trails winding through 29 themed gardens. Among them are a tropical rain forest, a bamboo garden, and regional desert landscapes. Together with two acclaimed children’s gardens and the Conservatory, it’s a hub for horticulture, conservation, education, and events.

The 8,000 sq. ft glass-enclosed Dickinson Family Education Conservatory houses rare and unusual tropical plants that add to the Gardens' extensive collection of nearly 5,000 plant species from around the world.
