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.

We visited recently on a weekday morning. Very few people were there...the solitude and quiet were a welcome respite from our usual hectic schedules. The gardens have many places to sit and just enjoy the breeze, listen to fountains, bask in the sun, and watch some of the local residents...guinea hens, peacocks, ducks and swan.

The wide variety of plantings ensured that the garden was different every time we visited. it is a wonderful place and we will definitely visit again.

When you first drive up to this garden it doesn't seem like much but there's a whole world of loveliness once you enter the actual gardens. This is a great place to take the family, bring a picnic. There's flowers, ponds with ducks and a big patch of bluebonnets. When I went there was a field of irises. I never knew they came in so many colors. Just beautiful!

We came the second Sat. in May, and the iris were probably prettier last week. It was a peaceful afternoon stroll. They were setting up for several weddings. It would make a nice setting for photos.

You wouldn't want to visit Mineral Wells for any reason. It's one of those has-been, hell holes blighting Northern Texas. If you do find yourself here, however, check out the only remotely redeeming attraction Mineral Wells has to offer, Clark Gardens Botanical Park. It's a quant walking garden, with highlights including flowers, geese, fountains, and a toy train set. Incidentally, the admission prices are steep, the rude staff blocks off all the best parts for weddings, and the garden's location is not far enough away from a highway to be totally secluded, but it offers a peaceful place to relax and enjoy.
