  • We spent a lovely day with three generations touring the beautifully manicured grounds. Because my elderly mother couldn’t walk much, we pre-arranged for a tour in a cart which was perfect. And we got...  more »
  • Beautiful with lots to do! I'd even say it's better than the one in Ft Worth. Lots of butterflies this time of year.  more »
  • I went to see the trains so that is what I liked. I do like trees and flowers. The trails are well kept, but the garden really needs some TLC.  more »

  • My husband and I live in Dallas and had been talking about bringing his Mother here for years - she lives in Mineral Wells and we never make enough time to walk the gardens whenever we come to town to visit her. Well, a few weekends ago, we made time as a surprise for Mother's Day and made a "day" of it. The love that is in these gardens is so very evident in every step that you take. From the employee in the ticket shop that was so kind to tell us about his favorite spots in the garden - and you could tell how much he loved the garden - to the immaculate presentation, care and grooming of the grounds itself. Being able to walk around and get lost within the paths and see native Texas plants, flowers, and herbs is just breathtaking. There are benches here and there for those that have trouble walking so you are able to rest - and even some places that have tables and chairs under shade. We found ourselves at one of those very tables close to closing on the day of our trip when one of the Gardens employees came to let us know they would be closing soon, and when my Mother in law made a joke that she didn't know if she could make it back to the front gates in 30 minutes (we were quite a distance at that point) he came back to get us in a 6 seat golf cart, even driving us to our car in the parking lot. I was so very impressed by that - everyone that we talked to during our visit was very attentive - they really seemed to care about their job. That was awesome. I'm very glad that we came - this is a hidden gem that I will be back to for a lovely stroll in a beautiful tranquil place.
  • I have been to the gardens in both fort worth and dallas and I feel they don't have anything on this place. Clark gardens is truly a hidden gem and a labor of love maintained by max Clark and his employees. My sister and I visited the garden on Easter and was awe struck by the beauty of all the different kinds of flowers in bloom. Plus it was kind of nice having the whole place to ourselves to take lots of pictures and not have a bunch of people in the way.
  • The gardens were so beautiful I forgot it was 94 degrees outside! It is worth the time and effort to visit. I'm definitely going back.
  • I absolutely loved this place. I am not a nature person, but this was a pretty unique experience. The garden is beautiful and you can feel the love that was out into it. It's $9.00 to get in though.
  • Best place to go to relax in nature while looking at beautiful flowers. One of my favorite places to go.
