“Small but Big in Beauty”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

This water lily collection is said to be one of the best in the country.
It is a wonderful collection of many rare hybrids. You must go during daylight or before dusk; when the flowers are open..
There are stairs, and 1 ramp for access.

“Blew us away!”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

We had no idea this world-class lily garden was here, but our family told us about it. It's dynamite! Worth spending quite a bit of time viewing these gorgeous lillies. Such beauty and variety. Can't say enough about how much we loved it! All ages will love it -- a "must" to see in San Angelo.

“Another Delight in Amazing San Angelo”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

San Angelo is so amazing, stuck out in the middle of nowhere, but the very civic-minded residents have made it "somewhere". The Water Lily Garden is such a delight. You have to know about it or you'll miss it. It's close to downtown, but a block off the main street of Beauregard, and set below street level. It is astonishingly gorgeous, once you get over the shock and surprise of something so amazingly beautiful and important in this small town. All the water lilies are lovely, but some are outstandingly so, and some are now very rare, endangered or nearly extinct. Other water lily ponds may be larger, but none have the diversity. Best times to visit are April to October. Please don't miss it.

“spectacular colors!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

It's a really small place and you can't see it easily because the lily ponds are about 15 lower than the street, but once you find it and stroll down to it the lilies are just beautiful! I wish the city would build a palapa with public restrooms and put a map of the city with one of those "you are here" markers on it. If you love plants just take a minute to see this place. It is serene and amazing!
