Fodor's Review

Step into 33 acres of formal gardens, wildflower-spangled meadows, native Texas vegetation, and a "touch and smell" garden specially designed for blind people. Among the gardens are older flower varieties, an extensive rose garden, and a Japanese garden. The centerpiece is the Halsell Conservatory, a 90,000-square-foot structure composed of seven tall glass spires. A self-guided tour of the climate-controlled conservatory takes visitors through the plants and flowers found in different environments around the world, from desert to tropics. The conservatory sits partially underground for a cooling effect in the hot Texas summers—a definite draw!
