The Captivating Desert Garden That’s An Oasis In Southern Utah
Utah’s desert can be quite beautiful…but when you cultivate natural desert plants, and conserve rare species in one place, you get a gorgeous oasis that you can visit over and over.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Red Hills Desert Garden opened in the spring of 2015, and has been a popular attraction ever since. You'll see why when you visit.
The garden covers five acres and includes a 1,150-foot-long stream that runs throughout.
Take a stroll along the pathways that wind throughout the garden.
Sit on a bench and enjoy the scenery.
You can even walk through a replica slot canyon to see what indigenous plants live in that environment.
As you'd expect, you'll find lots of cacti...
...but you might also be surprised how many blooming desert plants live here.
All throughout the garden, you'll see and hear the pretty little stream.
The stream is stocked with native species, some of them on the endangered species list. You can see them up close at the fish viewing area.
Red Hills Desert Garden is located at 375 E. Red Hills Parkway in St. George. Visit Monday through Saturday from 9 AM to 6 PM.
