  • Amazing history! Free and very accessible, interesting even to young visitors
  • Very cool me and my girl and family love it
  • Peaceful and relaxing.
  • Although this is a Religious park, it is a do not miss item for Tucson, the artist carved full sized statues of Jesus on the Cross, Mary and Child, and the Last Supper. The park has parking for about 10 vehicles, but usually only one or two will be there, and the walk into the park is easy, and there is a wheelchair and handicap ramp. Nicely maintained, it is unfortunate that in early April 2015 some 'nut-case' decided to destroy some of the statues just for the fun of doing so. Thus, the park may be temporarily closed while repairs are made. For more info see SeniorCitizenLocalWeb's review of the Garden of Gethsemane, it has great pictures of the park taken a week before the destruction. As you enter the park there are two brass placard and a bust of the artist, the history is on these, and worth reading. Expect to spend about 15 to 30 minutes, and then visit the 'A' on 'A' Mountain which is a short drive away. The 'A' is on top of the mountain and provides a great view of the city of Tucson.
  • Great ! Love it ! I Go visit every time I go to or thru Tucson ! Its now open again as of 7/23/2015 I first found it back in 1975 when I was stationed at Davis Monathan AFB there in Tucson . It wasn't developed back then !
