Hop on your own ATV on this off-roading adventure in the Sonoran Desert. After a safety briefing and training, gear up and ride across rugged, rocky trails in the scenic Bradshaw Mountains, as well as cross the Agua Fria River. Be on the lookout for coyotes, bobcats, and more, and learn about the region's flora and fauna and Native American history from your guide.

NO PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHS PERMITTED, according to the sign. I put mine back in the car. When I got inside I saw that they let others in with cameras, to say nothing of cell phones. A pond, koi, a path, grass. That's it, and it was nothing special. What a waste of money. Very small. To get a ticket we had to stand in the sun longer than it took for us to go through the garden. THE WATER DID NOT WORK IN THE WOMEN'S RESTROOM SO WE COULD NOT WASH OUR HANDS.

WARNING: Do NOT go here unless you are full vaccinated. Their website says masks required but they do not enforce it. There were multiple groups of people unmasked. I complained at ticketing but nothing happened. I attempted to politely ask a woman to mask or move from viewing platform that she had been on a long time. She started yelling at me about her personal freedoms. I left then. I called from my car in the lot and their response was "IF we see someone we ask them to mask and if they don't, well, what can we do." My response was you could ask them to leave. I asked for a refund and they refused to do so. They said someone would call me but it's been 3 days and no one has. It's a charming place and I'm soured on it for good. Very poorly run.

I liked that Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix. They had several waterfalls. There was a lot of water as well. I like to go at a Japanese Garden. They do a great attraction. There were several statues. There were bamboos and lots of flowers. Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix There was many fish. A must see! I liked the Japanese Monuments attractions I liked that.
