This holy garden is fantastic. Very beautiful place with well done sculptures and large cross. As I walked the area, I felt all my tensions and problems disappear and a calm come over me. Would have liked to stay longer. They are continually improving the area and will definitely visit again.

Many sculptures grace this land with a walk way of scriptures leading up to the empty cross!!! It then tells of how the cross came to be and who donated the land and a prayer garden of prayer stones.......A very holy place where the presence of God is truly felt!!! A must see!!

We first found this jewel a few years ago, and everytime we've come back they've added something new. Someone has a vision and they are steadily making progress towards accomplishing it. Fountain/baptismal pool is beautiful, bronze sculptures are amazing, it is quite a spiritual experience.

We never made it to the sculpture garden , when we hit the map to go to it it took us to 398 Mesa Verde Drive so if you go make sure your GPS address shows 520 Benson Drive. Then it started raining and we decided we couldn't do it in the rain.

My husband and I have gone to Kerrville many times and seen this HUGE cross up on a hill, but always assumed it was on private property. We were visiting my sister in San Antonio and her husband and her have visited this garden several times, so we made a trip to Kerrville to see it. We spent quite a... More

Peaceful area with beautiful bronze statues. There are rocks available to write prayers and leave with the prayers of other faithful followers. The cross can be seen from I-10 and is lit at night. Also offers a good view of the surrounding hill country.
