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

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!!

Gardening is clearly a challenge in Amarillo, but this place is lovely and the volunteers are knowledgeable and friendly.

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.

A wonderful botanical garden (the most impressive we saw on our trip through Texas) run almost entirely by volunteers. An indoor Bivins Conservatory with some exotic Asian trees and plants, other gardens feature local diverse plantlife, plants indigenous to nearby Palo Duro Canyon, etc. But our greatest joy were the Butterfly and Hummingbird gardens. In October, they were filled with... More
