Nice walking paths through the gardens with lots of azalea's and other plants and trees. Unfortunately for us, spring came really early this year and most of the azalea's were already past their full bloom but it was still beautiful.

This garden is beautiful! The azaleas were just coming on when we visited and they were still amazing. The fragrance leads you down the next path and the next. A definite must see.

Unfortunately, our visit to this area did not coincide with peak season for the azaleas but we did enjoy a short stroll along the paths. There is parking inside the garden area for a few cars. Enter by the ONE WAY sigh. I imagine this would just be so much more had we been able to hit during the azaleas... More

Great local gardens. Also one of our Eagle Scout candidates has built a Labyrinth on the property. Suggest you check it out. Not a lot of them out there like this!

This is just one of the many places to visit on a weekend in the oldest town in Texas, Nacogdoches, Mize Azalea Garden. Beautiful in the Spring when the azalea's are in full bloom. Really worth the visit!! .

Surprisingly beautiful especially when the azalea garden is in bloom. The garden is kept in pristine shape, and it is great just to wander around and enjoy what nature has to offer. A must when you are visiting Nacogdoches!

I guess we went at a peak blooming time because it was spectacular. If you like azaleas this is the place to go.
