“Pretty gardens near square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Very educational as plants and trees are labeled. Pleasant walk as short or long as you want. Arrived too late to visit the center

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The walk from the town square to the Crystal Bridges Museum was georgeous. Art is scattered along the walk - some humorous all appropriate to the surroundings. The path was clean.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon. We walked through it on our way to Crystal Bridges. It was so delightful, we tour more time to explore on our way back through. Most of the plantings are labeled and I love that.

“Lots of greenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

These gardens apparently connect downtown Bentonville to the Crystal Bridges Museum. There is a lot of art along the paths leading to the museum, but a lot of identified plants as well.
