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'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 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

Very Relaxing & Pleasant Place to Spend The Afternoon, just walking around and looking at the beautiful flowers and foliage. I was pleasantly surprised to find such a green atmosphere here in the very dry western Texas panhandle. We also toured the gardens at Christmas when then had thousands of lights on the plants and trees. I am told they... More

It's a very short trek through the rainforest, but it is an experience you won't forget. Just the smell of the earthy plants and the moisture - the flowers and the banana tree - really neat!!

There were thousands of Christmas lights on all the plants, trees, paths, etc. It was beautiful and there was a giant Christmas tree inside. It was like being in fairy land. This is a very beautiful place to visit in the summer too.

My wedding was a fairy tale made possible by the beautiful scenery & VERY helpful staff! The venue was large enough for my 100 person wedding, yet still it felt cozy and intimate.
