A cheap and fun outing for families and plant lovers! Love the ponds and unique sculptures that accentuate the gardens.

In the precise center of Austin sits 30 acres of flowers, divided into neat little mini-gardens each with their own theme and focus: There's the Japanese Zen garden, the prehistoric garden, the rose garden, the butterfly trail. This is a wonderful spot to bring visitors, especially if you've never been yourself.

Citysearch Editorial Review – More than 300,000 people a year visit these sprawling grounds on the south bank of the Colorado River. Each of the eight gardens has a theme, such as the Isamu Taniguchi Oriental Garden with a Japanese Teahouse and "Bridge to Walk Over the Moon," and the Hartman Prehistoric Garden, where dinosaur remains were discovered. The open-air pavilion in its center provides a view of the downtown Austin skyline.

This was a neat attraction. We went there on Sunday afternoon. There are beautifully landscaped areas. Lots of animals (squirrels, birds, etc.) and there is the Mother of all Aloe plants there. I took my picture by it! I'm 5'6" and it was a good 6-8 inches taller than I and about 5'wide.

Dead Animals Are Cool! – Especially enjoy the new Prehistoric Garden and dinosaur tracks. The lovely ponds/waterways alone are worth a visit. A most pleasant walk.
