Ottosen Entry Garden
Opened in November 2009, the Ottosen Entry Garden serves as Desert Botanical Garden’s grand lobby and features dramatic displays of cacti and succulents designed to showcase the beauty and diversity of desert plants and set the stage for your Garden experience. Four small gardens lie within the Ottosen Entry Garden: the entry, terrace, basin and canal gardens.
Adjacent to the Ottosen Entry Garden you will find many visitor amenities including the SRP Visitor Center, The Garden Shop, the Cohn Tour Gathering Area and restrooms. From here you can connect to the Desert Discovery Loop Trail and the Harriet K. Maxwell Desert Wildflower Loop Trail.
