What a nice surprise! While the indoor tropical exhibit is small, it shows a wide variety of plant and flowers. The outdoor landscaping, on the other hand, is lovely including some very interesting cacti. A waterfall, an outdoor mural and the trees make this a very peaceful place to experience.

I have visited the gardens during normal seasons with kids and had a blast. Probably the best time to visit is during Christmas when they decorate the whole area with lights. Its cool to see and if you hit it during a snow storm even better. Worth the time to visit any time.

Disappointed. I don't know if it was the time of year we were there, but we were disappointed in the gardens and the appearance of the whole place.

You would not think there would be a Botanical Garden in Amarillo. The gentleman on staff that day was kind enough to give us a tour. The sample foliage and waterfall exhibit is very nice. There is an inside and outside exhibit that is good for children. It is within walking distance to a small lake for a nice long... More

Beautiful plants and flowers in various settings. Worth a visit. They do a fantastic light display at Christmas-time, too.

This was really a brief stop to a small place. There was a cost to get in that surprised us for a place so small. Most of the exhibits were underwritten by local families or businesses.

For Amarillo's weather, the gardens have lots to offer during the spring and peak summer. Best to ask for a docent tour to get the most out of the gardens. Excellent display of what grows in the Amarillo area and the staff are very helpful in offering advice on plants. Also during the summer months there is music in the... More

Viewing everything there was to see only took about 30 minutes. You could tell it was the end of winter/beginning of spring because many of the plants in the greenhouse/conservatory were looking very neglected and haggard. Hardly any of the outside gardens had anything at all to see; just the fragrance garden with its hyacinths and a pretty border of... More

The Botanical Garden is actually a high point on the limited things to do for cultured visitors in Amarillo. Honestly it is botanical sanctuary with lots of native plantlife and smart xeriscaping. But what makes it special is it's unique design and layout. You can be there with several other groups or families and still feel that you are somewhat... More
