I have been to the gardens during the day, but every December, the ABG puts on a fund raiser for the gardens that is really special. Every night they open up the gardens which have been decorated with thousands of Christmas lights. It's a little chilly so bundle up, but walking though the lights is beautiful. Even have decorations in... More

Much replanting is going on and therefore some areas closed to the public. Full price still enthsiastically charged by the office!! However, a very pleasent garden and an enormous walkaround tropical greenhouse. This is also a meeting / conference centre which is a great idea although requires full outside catering. Cafe on site would be a definite benefit and ensure... More

Small garden, but very well kept with a very interesting green house. VERY hot if you go in the summer. Also a very quick trip - you can be in and out in 30 minutes if you don't linger.

We went on a perfect sunday afternoon. Very little traffic and the gardens are stunning. The colors were beautiful and they plenty of room for growth, so i will be returning for an additional trip to see what will be new.

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.
