Overview

Clark Gardens Botanical Park welcomes visitors all year long. The breathtaking 35 acre oasis awakens the senses, stirs the spirit and relaxes the mind. From the first spring blossoms to the colorful fall and into the stillness of winter there is a sense of magic. Wheelchair accessible pathways wind through lavish ribbons of color and fragrance. Waterfalls sparkle in the sunlight splashing down to ponds and lakes where black and white swans, along with other waterfowl, glide in the shimmering waters. You may see peacocks strutting, or get a glimpse of blue herons or great egrets swooping down, their huge wingspans casting shadows over the lakes.

We lived within 45 minutes of Clark Gardens and never knew it was there. This place is a really beautiful, laid back park that has something for everyone. Special events, weddings, kids-- whatever. The model train display is really fun, and quite unexpected. Ducks welcome...More

This place is gorgeous when everything is in bloom. It's huge and has wonderful walking trails that guide you through the beauty. Pack a lunch and it's a winner of a date spot.

The gardens are well maintained and beautiful. A real surprise is the miniature railroad display. Several levels of track and wonderful display of Mineral Wells and Weatherford in forgotten times

We went to a wedding at this place. It is a very nice setting. It is a big place so having the reception on site is ideal.

We spent a lovely day with three generations touring the beautifully manicured grounds. Because my elderly mother couldn’t walk much, we pre-arranged for a tour in a cart which was perfect. And we got the added bonus of stories about Clark Gardens, plants, and even...More

I went to see the trains so that is what I liked. I do like trees and flowers. The trails are well kept, but the garden really needs some TLC.

Credit cards are no problem. We were so impressed, we bought an annual membership, which is also good for admission in other Texas parks.
