Cholla Forest Maze

A stay-on-the-path experience through the cholla forest maze
will encourage visitors to confront their fears about proximity
to cactus stickers and will give a sense of accomplishment
at successful navigation through the spiny labyrinth.

Vonn's original proposed design, shown below, is about 60 feet wide by 180 feet long. His design has been implemented but modified to allow more exits for safety reasons.

especially for our Arizona State bird, the Cactus Wren.

Cholla Rose Bud Garden



To be modeled after a traditional-style English rose garden,
the Cholla Rose Bud Garden will display the soft pinks, vibrant reds
and warm oranges of cholla flowers in a familiar garden format.
