  • Many acres of plants, apparently of Texas. Outdoor flower gardens have flowering plants, which bloom at different times of the year. There are vegetable patches. And there are indoor "conservatories.....  more »
  • This place was pretty. I loved the Texas trails. They were some of my favorite parts. The rose garden will be beautiful in the spring I like the way it was laid out. I can’t wait to come back some...  more »
  • We thought this was a very nice botanical garden. We enjoyed the more formal gardens more than the "Texas" landscape hikes that are on the West side of the property. The family adventure garden is.....  more »
  • If you love Horticulture or just plants in general like I do, this 38 acre park is an astonishing piece of mastery !!! The way that one part of the park leads you into another into another by both gravel paths and concrete sidewalks is truly a masterpiece !!! You name it, its probably there on display. I took so many pictures that I cant post them all, but I'll try to get the best ones out. It's a great way to spend at least 2 to 3 hours, if not more. It all depends on your interest. I highly recommend it !!!
  • Amazing and inexpensive to visit. You can stay all morning or all day. Beautiful, other-worldly gardens, amazing variety of plant life. Walk through a forest! The grounds here and deceptively massive and it's pretty empty in the mornings. Take the family here and skip the misery of the big parks.
  • The gardens were quite beautiful and lush. There were several places to walk around and hang out at. This is a perfect place to hold a venue, The Cocktail Event was held here and it was very organized. The entrance was very open and included a gift shop, this would be a great place to visit.
  • This place is absolutely incredible. I’ve been to many gardens, and this is one of the best I’ve ever seen! The diversity of foliage and collections was amazing. The garden just kept going and going and going! In Texas, I find it hard to be able to connect with nature, so this was the first place I was able to. Even on an 100 degree day in summer, I absolutely loved visiting here
  • Haven't been here in 10 years and the changes are great. New little river for the kids to wade in and little play houses, along with the botanical presentations are very impressive. We upgraded to a season pass as we didn't get to see it all.
