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

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
