The Beaumont Garden Center became the Beaumont Botanical Gardens in 1996.

  • Stopped out of season, while passing thru area. Not much in season, but nice path ways and large pond with waterfall.  more »
  • It was a nice little visit to stop by the garden while in Beaumont. Even though it is winter time it still had charm with the paths. The inside gardens are gorgeously done. It is modern and well kept....  more »
  • Great little garden to stroll through. Plus, there is no entrance fee. Don't miss the boardwalk in the park out into the wetland to see the birds.  more »

  • Beautiful place. I personally love nature so it was very relaxing. And the pond with the turtles and fish, just don't forget bread.
  • Very beautiful garden! I like it here!
  • I loved this place and will return for sure. Parking was easy. Restrooms inside. The bathroom did not have a changing table but the restroom a building over for weddings did. It was also air-conditioned. I donated a few dollars for fish food. My husband, sister and her 2 year old came yesterday. BABY O he loved to run along the paths looking at all the different plants and trees. Next to the indoor water fall where the fish were I saw a beautiful little garden snake. One of the trees Akee Apple from Africa had fruit on it. That was cool to see. We left the indoor botanical garden and went out side to follow the paths. We saw tons of butterfly's, huge grasshopper things, Amazingly huge banana spiders. Two other people on the path said they also saw a snake. Which was nice to know. Well keep a look out. No big deal it is the out doors. I hope the snakes I have mentioned above di t detour people from this place. We got to lake in the back and fed the fish. I wish I had more food because the fish were amazing. There were so many of them and they were huge. Good eating size if you will. lol. We walked around the rose garden area and let baby O smell the roses. Sat under a gazebo for a while and continued in to a Stagg statue. Then we headed back to the car. We all rode together to the end of the park where there is a cattail park area. I am not usually into this swamp kind of thing but this was just beautiful. The pictures just don't do it justice. We saw many different kinds of plants, beautiful birds with babies, different sized turtles, no gattors and no snakes out here. The wood out look walking area was clean and safe to walk on. Looked newish to me. After that we drive back to the car and my husband and I followed her to a restaurant were we when to eat but that's a different review "Cheddars" It was a nice open park area out around the golf area. Nice place to do a party? Just a lot of room. I didn't see a play scape or any thing. We will return and bring Frisbees and such next time.
  • The gardens are exceptional. Both the outside and the indoor are well worth the visit.
  • My son and daughter-in-law were married in the gardens this past week-end and held the reception in the hall. It was beautiful! Doug, the venue coordinator, was very courteous and helpful throughout the planning stages and during the event. Beautiful place to spend the day or have your special event!
