“It's ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I blame the terain for my bland reaction to this center. It is fantastic for a month out of the year then it just goes brown. It is also very flat and doesn't surprise you in any way.

“You can't miss this one!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you love the outdoors and the beauty, this is a wonderful place to visit. Lady Bird's touch is everywhere! They also hold weddings there; ministertogonow.com can perform your wedding here if you would want to rent the facilities.

“Wild Flowers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

I will always be grateful to Lady Bird for all the flowers that appear in the road ditches all over Texas in the spring. The center is a focal point for this.

“Beautiful!”

What a great way to spend a couple of hours. It was hot but well worth the trip. This would be a great place to hold a wedding.

Flowers, and walks, and plants, and serenity. Just a short drive out side of Austin. Worth the time.
