I love finding hidden gems throughout the valley. And, this hidden gem was literally across the street from me. The Scottsdale Xeriscape Garden is located across the street from my old high school. It was built within my memory, but I couldn't tell you precisely, when they built the water treatment plant. I've driven past this everyday for years and I finally decided to go check it out.
It's similar to the Desert Botanical Gardens except it's free and there's a little less to look at. And the best part is that it's right by the dog park.
I'd actually love to go back in the spring to see how things will change.
