The owner of the gardens is incredibly nice and funny; you can really tell she cares about the gardens (which are absolutely beautiful). I definitely recommend visiting Ricky the tropical duck in the indoor area. He is a beautiful duck. I had such a great time here.

We came here on a Monday morning, and it wasn't crowded at all. Beautiful gardens. Very friendly staff. It took us about an hour to walk the whole gardens. Great way to burn a little bit of time before heading to lunch.

Amarillo the gardens are always changing. You're always thinking of things to involve community and considering we live in a desert they've got a wonderful job and bringing different plant life. If you're taking kids make sure to amount of time for them to play some of that energy out of the playground between the botanical gardens and the discovery... More

Love to go there especially in the spring when all the flowers are blooming! They also have a large glassed in building with palms, waterfalls, misting sprinklers, and a walking trail that is nice when it is cold and freezing outside!
