Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park Superior, AZ

What a place!!!  There is over three miles of paths and trails over 100 acres of gardens and features plants from the desert ecosystems all across the planet.  There is a Hummingbird & Butterfly Garden, Heritage Rose Garden, Display Greenhouses, Children’s Horticulture Garden, Taylor Desert Legum Garden, large Interpretive Center, Chihuahuan Exhibit, Cactus & Succulent Garden and much much more. 

The park is just a hour drive from Phoenix and is really worth the visit in the historical town of Superior on Hwy 60.  Take the time to drive there or stop as you travel, it is worth the time.
