The Carefree Desert Garden is one of two public botanical gardens in the Valley located along Easy Street in downtown, Carefree, AZ. Situated on four acres, couples and families can stroll and enjoy rare and fascinating desert plant specimens on a self-guided walking tour which leads visitors to experience a purely visual and emotional connection with nature. Inspired by Carefree master gardeners, and residents June Reilly and Marilyn Maloney who wanted to spruce up the town center’s flora, looked to Mark and Juanita Wdowiak of Desert Foothills Landscaping who agreed to get involved to design and donate hundreds of plants and labor to the project. The Carefree Desert Gardens were first installed in 2001 as part of a Town Center beautification project and the Gardens were redone and opened to the public in November of 2011.
