Location Shooting

We understand the desire to use the Desert Botanical Garden as a location for filming and photo shoots. We receive many more requests than we can accommodate and we do our best to be helpful, but we have limited resources. Because of our limited resources, most requests cannot be fulfilled.If you have questions, please email media@dbg.org or call 480 481.8101.

There are many regional desert parks such as Papago Park, South Mountain and McDowell Sonoran Preserve. To contact City of Phoenix Parks, call 602 261.8318. To contact McDowell Mountain Preserve, call 480 312.3111.

Media Visits

Media visit requests should be made as early as possible so necessary arrangements can be made ahead of time. Please email media@dbg.org or call (480) 481-8101 to arrange a visit.

Please note that complimentary passes are issued to media working on assignment only and cannot be extended to media on leisure visits.
