Desert Garden Park


The Desert Garden at Scottsdale Ranch Park is located on the corner of Via Linda and Lakeview Drive and is FREE and open to the public. It was designed to enhance the understanding of the Sonoran Desert, of botanical processes, and of the geology and soil materials indigenous to the nearby McDowell Mountains.

The Desert Garden has three zones:

  • Hummingbird nest for the low desert area.
  • Saguaro and bat sanctuary for the high desert area.
  • Butterfly garden for the riparian community area.
