I've been going to Kingwood since I was a little girl. My parents would take me there to feed the ducks, look at the pretty flowers, and view the wildlife. My favorite were the beautiful peacocks! It used to be free, but now to help upkeep the grounds they charge a small entrance fee, I believe $5 per car load.... More

Thanks for the wonderful review, Charity. You are correct - we charge $5.00 per car for admission. As a 501c(3) charitable organization, we rely on that support to keep Kingwood in tip-top shape! More

Wow!!!! Beautiful, simply beautiful. So much to do here - the gardens, greenhouse, trails, the mansion of Charles King estate - a peaceful spot. This is a wonderful day trip and we had a very informative docent who led our tour. You will want to return!!! We were even able to observe a beautiful bride having pictures taken.

This compact, 47-acre botanical garden is a wonderful place to spend a few hours. Despite the periodic showers on a recent spring visit, we enjoyed strolling through the well-designed gardens and greenhouse and the handsome mansion of the former Charles King estate. The number of events and workshops that are offered is quite impressive.

We like to visit several times a year. My husband loves to take pictures here. We come in the spring to see bulbs in bloom and flowering trees. Summer is a great time for other flowers and bushes, along with iris and day lilies.

These gardens are beautiful! And such a peaceful place to visit right in the city. There are brick and concrete walking paths that accommodate wheelchairs and strollers nicely. You will see many diverse flower beds of annuals and perennials, a big variety of trees, and plants. The gardens are maintained expertly and creatively designed. Fountains and statues add to the...

I am a local to the Mansfield area, and I just love this place. paths off into the woods, greenhouses, the estate tours, just amazing. during christmas time it is all decorated and gorgeous, and during Halloween, the famous pumpkin glow; hundreds of carved pumpkins along the paths and porches.
