Small, but pretty

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... read more

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.

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

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
