Owner description: Clark Gardens Botanical Park welcomes visitors all year long. The breathtaking 35 acre oasis awakens the senses, stirs the spirit and relaxes the mind. From the first spring blossoms to the colorful fall and into the stillness of winter there is a sense of magic. Wheelchair accessible pathways wind through lavish ribbons of color and fragrance. Waterfalls sparkle in the sunlight splashing down to ponds and lakes where black and white swans, along with other waterfowl, glide in the shimmering waters. You may see peacocks strutting, or get a glimpse of blue herons or great egrets swooping down, their huge wingspans casting shadows over the lakes.

Have been out there during events. They always have a family friendly event or fundraiser on the schedule. The gardens are kept up and beautiful. Great for weddings, relaxing outings or pictures.

We did a photography session while all of our family was together at Clark Botanical Gardens. This is a surprisingly beautiful oasis in north Texas. Stop in if you have time just to stroll and meditate on God's beautiful creation. Best time is spring and early summer.

I know that most folks are not looking at this sight to find wedding locations, but Clark Gardens is one of limited outdoor wedding venues available in the area. My daughter chose Clark Gardens for her wedding and although it is a lovely location, the wedding coordinator made it such a dreadful experience that it tainted the decision. Many, many... More

7 of us were in the area for a reunion and stopped in to visit the gardens. Even though it was October there were many flowers in bloom, especially the roses. The model trains were a hit with the men, but we all had a leisurely stroll through a well kept and beautiful place. It should be on your list... More

Visited Clark Gardens on July 6th and surprisingly garden was beautiful and flowers blooming in spite of the heat. Recent rains helped I'm sure. I can only imagine how beautiful these gardens would be in the spring and plan to return at that time of the year. Would love to catch the peacocks displaying. Many beautiful sculptures, a waterfall, beautiful... More

We visited recently on a weekday morning. Very few people were there...the solitude and quiet were a welcome respite from our usual hectic schedules. The gardens have many places to sit and just enjoy the breeze, listen to fountains, bask in the sun, and watch some of the local residents...guinea hens, peacocks, ducks and swan. The wide variety of plantings... More

When you first drive up to this garden it doesn't seem like much but there's a whole world of loveliness once you enter the actual gardens. This is a great place to take the family, bring a picnic. There's flowers, ponds with ducks and a big patch of bluebonnets. When I went there was a field of irises. I never... More
