Tohono Chul Park

Translated from the Tohono O'odham language, Tohono Chul means "desert corner", and indeed this park is a treasured piece of the desert in the middle of the city.

Tohono Chul Park is a 49-acre (20 ha.) desert preserve dedicated to increasing visitors' appreciation of the Sonoran Desert, its history and culture.

As you walk down the winding nature trail through various gardens; tour through the Exhibit Hall in a renovated historic home; enjoy breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea in the Tea Room and shop in the Greenhouse and Museum Shops; you begin to understand why the desert is so cherished in Tucson.

The Tohono Chul Park Tea Room
A handsome Spanish-Colonial home, the West House, with its plant-filled courtyard and welcoming patio is home to the Tohono Chul Park Tea Room. Serving breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea.

The adjacent La Fuente Museum Shop features a splash of colorful curios and gifts; venture on to La Entrada Museum Shop and Greenhouse, also outside the Park's fee area, featuring plenty of arid-adapted plants, pots and garden/home decor!
