what to expect

Watermill

Demonstration Gardens

In the demonstration gardens you will be able to speak with horticulturists and learn about different garden techniques, plants, soil and watering.

The year-round fruit orchard is planted by harvest month, where you can see what varieties of fruits are available for harvest at any given month of the year in the Valley of the Sun.

Child-friendly Activities

In addition to permanent exhibits, rotating exhibits will change frequently throughout the year. Children will also have plenty to do with hands-on exhibits, animals, and other activities.
