Thank you for visiting and we're so glad you got to meet one of our awesome admissions staff members! Come on back any time -- there's something new to see every season. Visited here several years ago with my adult daughter when we were traveling in the area for work. We loved the experience then even though nothing was in bloom at the time , so this time when my husband and I were back in the area again for work, I decided I had to bring him so he could experience.
By the end of our couple of hours of exploring and another hour of lunch in the cafe and visiting the gift shop, we decided to become members of the center. What a great place.
And now we receive emails about what is in bloom and the variety of programs they have going on throughout the year. Thank you for becoming members! We're so glad you enjoyed your time here.
You can use your membership to receive free or discount admission at MANY other gardens across the country, so be sure to check that out on our membership pages online! This was a beautiful experience if you're up for a leisurely stroll the acres of the center.
Going in Springtime definitely allows Texas wildflowers their time to show off. We were told during out visit that their is a mother owl who has come the last 6 years in a row to have her babies.
