Overview

The Santa Fe Botanical Garden strives to benefit all Santa Fe and New Mexico citizens, and our area's many visitors. The Botanical Garden is an independent nonprofit, not a part of the four Santa Fe state museums, with a commitment to affordable admission and providing monthly Community Days free for New Mexico residents. Our educational mission raises awareness of critical issues such as water conservation, climate change impact, and responsible gardening practices. SFBG consists of the Botanical Garden on Museum Hill and the Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve. The Gardens provides an "outdoor living room" where everyone can connect with nature, marvel at amazing plant varieties, and benefit from a place for contemplation. Visitors can relax under shading ramadas, discover a century-old red bridge, and explore the Art Trail, where changing exhibitions of sculpture will encourage return visits. With an array of native and traditional plants, awe-inspiring stone and metal work, and breathtaking vistas, the Botanical Garden is the essence of New Mexico. The Landscape Architect is W Gary Smith, and we are currently in construction of a 2nd phase, an Ethnobotanical garden to open in 2016. Please stop by and enjoy beauty and lessons to be learned in the garden! Thank you.

We went here last year during the holidays and several times since then. It is a wonderful garden with lots of space and interesting plants. They did a wonderful job last Christmas with the night showing. Don't miss it!

After seeing the ABQ botanical garden there’s no comparison. You can go thru Santa Fe’s in maybe 15 minutes. We were there 2 days after a killing frost so the flowers were gone. But even so, it’s small. The stone work and a few statues...More

If you love botanical gardens this one will not disappoint. I make it a priority to see one where ever I travel. It is located on Museum Hill and is easy to wander about.

My husband and don't know much about plants, but thoroughly enjoyed walking through all that beauty. Extra benefit was a great recommendation from the gift shop lady about another 'must see' in Santa Fe which was much appreciated.

Since we were already in the vicinity, we stopped by after touring the museums. Nice views, excellent sculptures...clearly a work in progress, however, that might not merit a separate trip at this time. Wear appropriate shoes, we saw one person slip and go down hard...More

This lovely and relatively new botanical garden warrants a short visit. It has a nice variety of plants, and we saw lots of hummingbirds.

By botanical garden standards, this one is very small. But it is also clearly loved by the staff and volunteers that tend it. There are plenty of nooks and benches for sitting and enjoying it. The Garden also offers a variety of classes, lectures and...More
