Tohono Chul is a treasure. It is fairly large, but feels small and intimate. It is as if you are wandering through a rich person's desert garden. Beautifully planted and landscaped, with the additional attraction of an excellent art gallery.

We went for light display and events over Christmas holidays. It was nice but a little pricey and access to some areas of the park are blocked off. Would like to go back during the day and really see the gardens.

Yes. The trails are wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair, and there are ramps into the main building and restaurant. The gift shop would be too tight for a wheelchair, I think.
