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

It's fun to go near christmas because they put lights everywhere. It is really pretty. It was free but I think they normally charge.

I visit Amarillo frequently on business. There are few attractions. This little gem is worth searching for and visiting. The gardens are not spacious, but are so well tended that you will linger and relax. The rainforest has lovely flowers and trees on display. What really struck me was the committment of the volunteers to do as much as possible... More

We went to se the Christmas lights. That means we went during the winter; meaning the gardens were nlt green. With that said I enjoyed the tropical area and the gardens were decorated very nicely. The inly thing is that it is very small. Nice place I will like to gi during the spring to be able to appreciate the... More

They boast "100,000 lights" during Christmas time. It's a lovely way to spend an evening during the holidays-follow the paths lined with lights and snuggle for photos under the trees. It's pretty magical! Live music and hot chocolate are served inside during the event, too. Take a jacket and try to go earlier than later, as the crowds can get... More

We've been to botanical gardens in many areas of the US and each one has it's own special appeal. This one was a pleasant surprise, I didn't expect to see so many blooming green plants in such a warm dry climate. And the butterfly sanctuary was a photographer's delight! It was very hot so dress accordingly and bring plenty of... More

The Botanical Gardens has made milestones in its physical plant (no pun intended) and programs. It now reaches out to more than just a limited population, for events invite families of all age groups. It's not as large as gardens found in big cities, but it is an interesting and rather startling space, considering the dusty, windy, wide-open spaces of... More

We decided to visit the garden in the afternoon after we made our hotel reservations for the night. We had a very hard time finding it, but after several attempts, we located it. The admission price was very reasonable. The butterfly garden was beautiful with dozens of butterflies flying around from flower to flower. We even saw several rare hummingbird... More

The Amarillo Botanical Gardens are always interesting to visit and see what is new. Native plants are the way to go in a hot dry climate and by watching and learning from the staff, I too can have a pretty yard under difficult circumstances. The conservatory has a family of ducks that can survive the climate of Amarillo, and many... More
