The spring flowers are amazing! Nice walk out to the point and also access to Lake Hamilton beach. Dog friendly! Well kept, wide paths and walkways.

This is probably one of my favorite botanic gardens I've visited in a long time. A few key highlights was the Anthony Chapel, the tree house and a few of the overlooks. I love that it isn't just one path, there's multiple sub paths you can take through the gardens, like stepping stones. We had no problems finding parking and we went during the afternoon on a weekday, might be different for other times like the morning. I believe the chapel is free if you walk in the entrance to the East but the actual gardens is like $20. Great place to spend the day, views, peace and some fun!!!
This is a beautiful garden which for you to enjoy. Cost is $20 per person, and $5 for a dog to tour the grounds. You will see everything from a structured treehouse, waterfall, a creek, and even a small cave behind the waterfall that you can crawl through if you're physically able. The walking trails are wide easy accessible some of which are gravel some of which are rock. You may even experience or see some multiple creatures that live in the area. The restrooms are clean the gift shop is nice and well taken care of and this place even offers a grill for your dining pleasure. During the Christmas time of year many decorations are placed throughout the garden which could be viewed as they are illuminated and help to bring the garden to life. It's a wonderful place to simply spend time with friends and family, to take a stroll enjoy nature and get some of that much needed exercise your doctor keeps telling you about. Take time to visit the gardens enjoy your day and take your time walking along the trails and experiencing the wonders of nature and what Arkansas has to offer.
We were lucky enough to hit the gardens while the tulips were in full bloom. Really nice enjoyable time. Fair $15 adult entry fee. These gardens give you tons of freedom to roam about walk across waterfalls get off the main paths on stepping Stones closer to nature. Truly enjoyed the freedom these gardens give for roaming. Excellent garden area for children also. If you are a senior or have any immobility that keep you from getting around you can also request a golf cart tour to get around easier. I think the golf cart tours are included with admission but I am not 100% certain on this.
What a beautiful place. This was my first visit to the gardens. Great walking paths to take for a leisurely stroll with your family. Plan to be here for at least 2-4 hours if you walk most of the trails. The Chipmunk Cafe was good but on the pricey side so make sure to pack a lunch/snacks/drinks for the kiddos. They offer guided golf cart tours which is nice for those unable to walk the full trails. Will definitely make a trip back here.
The Garvan gardens are beautiful. There is a mix of easy flat paved trails and more natural gravel trails. This would be a great place to let kids run and have fun in nature. The gift shop is the only place in all of Hot Springs that I was not greeted with hospitality. Anthony’s glass chapel is free to see. The garden is a pay to see self guided walking tour. All of the grounds could easily be seen in an afternoon.
