November 3rd GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION   9am-12pm You’re invited to celebrate the official grand opening with live entertainment, light refreshments and a free gift to the first 1,000 guests through the gate (while supplies last).

It was just over a year ago that we broke ground for our new entrance, opening November 3rd. The new entrance complex completes the first of a three-phase construction project funded through The Living Desert’s Pride of the Desert capital campaign. Guests will be welcomed into the new Patti and Jack Grundhofer Plaza with palm-lined walkways and new guest service amenities.
