Go for a visit to just tour the grounds and see the art. If there's an event in the evening the lights in the sculpture garden along with outdoor music and dancing - seems like only the best restaurants cater these parties.

Very nice sculpture garden, with nice (not great) sculptures by Charles Umlauf. We attended a small wedding here that was lovely. Great venue!

This was a cute small area to walk and see all the sculptures. It takes maybe 30 minutes to see, but not a lot of parking on the grounds themselves.

Charles Umlauf left a legacy of his sculptures where many of his pieces are exhibited inside and outside. This is a beautiful garden for a leisurely stroll to view many of Umlauf's pieces,

My children and I visited the gardens on a Sunday when they do Child Craft. It was so beautiful and peaceful. Easily walked through and enjoyed in a few hours - is a great place to get away from the noisy city center.

There are other places in Austin that might welcome such services, though. The Butterfly Garden and the Zilker Rose Garden, for ex.
