Creation of a public garden was one of the goals of that organization. The gardens were first established in 1968 when the city of Beaumont set aside 10 acres of land at Tyrrell Park. The Beaumont Garden Center Building was dedicated on August 20, 1971. In 1972, a master plan for the gardens was drawn up, and labeling of the trees, vines, and shrubs begun. The Beaumont Garden Center became the Beaumont Botanical Gardens in 1996.

  • Small gardens in a few trails. Great waterfalk in pond, with Koi fish. Beautiful place. Photographers take up a lot of places, gotta view around them.
  • Really nice. 9/11 memorial. Keep eyes open for snakes in the back near the pond.
  • 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!
  • Excellent place to have a relax time and enjoy nature.. Bring your friends and take some pictures together
  • Boring unless you like golf. Not for kids, not a single playground in sight. The Cattail marsh is nothing but a old water filled landfill with a single pier for watching birds. The trail isn't so much a trail as much as it is a maintenance road you can walk on.
