I have lived in San Angelo 8 years and did not realize this area was here. Someone has put a lot of work into the Lily Garden and everyone should see it at least once.

This attraction was not what I was expecting; it's more an industrial plant than a garden with lots of concrete and many empty tanks when we visited. That plus the fact that few blooms were to be seen and that we've seen far better gardens...More

There were no water lilies, and all the flowers were dead but I was expecting that being winter. I'm sure in the spring and summer it's a beautiful place

It is amazing how many and how beautiful the water lilies are. The lilies come in beautiful colors and different shapes and it is fascinating how and why they are given their names.

Yes. This Lily Garden is located in a public park that dogs are allowed in. There is a fence around the pool that protects the lilies.
