Soothe your senses at this beautiful garden—and so much more. In addition to its seven year-round gardens (including a rose garden, Japanese garden, perennial garden and more), families will specifically love the Texas Native Forest Boardwalk.Dubbed a living outdoor classroom, guests can stroll this pathway to see the native forest and read about stewardship and conservation. The boardwalk is home to kids’ educational programming, where children walk on balance beams, explore animal habitats and use scopes to spot wildlife. Kids will also love feeding the koi fish in the Japanese garden (some will let you “pet” them!).
This venue can accommodate children with special needs.
