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.

“Needs maintenance”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

While the concept is great, the entire park seemed to be poorly maintained.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

This place is definately worth your drive. The blooms and ground are so beautiful anytime of the year. During different times of the year they host special events which is always pleasing. Then, take a short drive down the road to visit Mineral Wells. The State Park has awesome places to hike and just walk around lake Mineral Wells.
