By visiting in January, of course nothing was in bloom We could imagine that during the summer it would be very wonderful. They have a nice little gift shop. We are going to try and go again when the weather is better.

Not a huge center but the staff and very knowledgeable and patient with young children. My grandkids, ages 10 and 12 insist on visiting the center every time they are in Kerrville and never get tired of the exhibits.

The garden is great, very informative. Then be sure to walk through fence gate to a path down to the river. Cross the little bridge, see the view I've added, and enjoy a wonderful walk. I would suggest taking a picnic down to the river, there's tables there and a beautiful setting.

This was a very well designed 'park' and the locals should really take advantage of it - we did see quite a few people there walking (with and without their dogs) I saw quite a few critters (bream, fancy bird that I haven't ID'd yet and a super friendly squirrel (he thought we were going to feed him) Really nice...

Was impressed with the additions and improvements to the Center since my last visit a few years ago. The self tour is laid out well and the plants are labeled which made it possible to identify each Hill Country native plant. The Visitor Center has a nice variety of gift items for all ages and the staff were enthusiastic and... More

This was a nice hike, the majority was paved and easily accessible. The kids just wanted to run up and down the hills. We packed a lunch and did this in the early morning. We notice there were some classes/educational opportunities on a few weekends and would have loved to catch one so check the website. There are restrooms available... More

We saw this at dusk and only walked down to the river. It seems to be a pretty nice place. We saw deer in the brush-up close and personal.

Stop by and see this nature center if you are interested in the native plants of the Hill Country or just love a leisurely stroll with beauty. The path goes right by the Guadalupe River. It is not for profit....many volunteers take care of this beautiful nature center.
