The Desert Botanical Garden is pleased to announce the installation of a Wi-Fi network covering locations that are natural gathering spots within the Garden’s property. Visitors will now be access free Wi-Fi from five locations: the area in front of Admissions, the Ottosen Entry Garden, Boppart Courtyard, the Center for Desert Living Trail and Ullman Terrace.

“Being able to offer free Wi-Fi to our visitors has been a goal of the Garden’s for a long time,” said MaryLynn Mack, deputy director of Desert Botanical Garden. “I can’t image a more beautiful place to spend some time answering email, reading your favorite online publication, or doing a little work.”

In addition, Wi-Fi has been added to the Garden’s indoor facility rental spaces. Now, at any meeting, conference, or other event held in Dorrance Hall, Webster Auditorium, Whiteman Conference Room, or the Wells Fargo or Munson Family Classrooms, participants will be able to access Wi-Fi.

Signs indicating the location of the Wi-Fi areas are being installed this spring and the locations will be added to the Garden’s trail map when reprinted this summer.

The Garden’s Wi-Fi network is partially funded by a grant from the Arizona Community Foundation.
