Santa Fe Botanical Garden

A Showcase of Northern New Mexico’s Natural & Artistic Beauty

Designed by landscape architect W. Gary Smith, this over 20-acre Botanical Garden features native plants mixed with appropriate non-natives, which are all selected to demonstrate the variety and richness that can be achieved in this region of scarce water. Here you can explore 8 acres along walking paths through the distinct gardens such as The Orchard Gardens and Art Trail, and ethnobotanical garden, Ojos y Manos: Eyes and Hands Garden.  Another highlight is the Arroyo Trails area that cover 8 acres and demonstrate the effectiveness of the latest arroyo (gully) restoration techniques.  

Part of the community for over 20 years, Santa Fe Botanical Garden is supported by approximately 300 active volunteers and also manages the 35-acre Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve.


The Santa Fe Botanical Garden is featured in our Love Your Parks Tour “Gardens Across America” map story project assigned by fine art nature photographer Margot Carrera.
