Fodor's Review

With the beautiful landscaped paths and lovely Milner Plaza, Museum Hill has always been about much more than the collections inside its four world-class museums. The summer 2013 opening of this 12-acre garden across the street from Milner Plaza's parking lot has added an another great reason for exploring this neighborhood situated on a bluff with fantastic views of the surrouding mountains. The facility is divided into four sections that emphasize distinct elements of

New Mexico's flora and terrain: the Orchard Gardens, the Naturalistic Gardens, the Courtyard Gardens, and the Arroyo Trails. You can gain a much fuller sense of what's planted and why by embarking on one of the free guided tours, offered each day at 10 am and 2 pm. The organization also operates Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve on 27283 I–25 West Frontage Road (next to El Rancho de las Golondrinas), which is open spring through fall; and the Ortiz Mountains Educational Preserve, which is near Cerillos (off NM 14, the Turquoise Trail) and open only by appointment for docent-led hikes—check the SFBG website for more on these other properties.
