With a living collection of over 800 kinds of cacti, the Arboretum has become a center for the study of this family of desert plants. Most of the 800 species are displayed in the Cactus Garden and in the cactus greenhouse at the Smith Interpretive Center. There is no restaurant at the Arboretum but sandwiches, drinks and snacks are available in our gift shop. Picnic tables and charcoal grills are available for visitors to use. Regular daily admission of $7.50 for adults or $3 for ages 5-12 includes weekend events such as our May 26 guided Butterfly Walk with Education Coordinator Chris Kline. Summer schedule during May, June, July and August has public hours daily from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The arboretum is located near milepost #223 on US Highway 60, a one-hour drive due east of Phoenix or about 90 minutes from the North side of Tucson via Oracle Road to highway 79 North past Florence to the crossroads with highway 60 -- then another 12 miles East on highway 60.
