I love this place. So beautiful and peaceful. We always visit on our annual Spring trip. Take a marker so you can write on a prayer stone.

Very serene and well kept. Prayer stones available and also prayer letters in dispenser. Evolving all the time with new things being added. The lion of Judah is waiting to be positioned. Large Iron Cross overlooking Route 10. Well worth a visit.

Wonderful serene place with majestic large cross that can be seen from I-10. Many statues and bible verses to spread the saving message of Christ. Go there and you won't be disappointed.

We’re wintering in the Hill Country, staying in Bandera. Decided to spend Saturday exploring Kerrville, about 20 miles away. After our first stop at the Visitors Center, we knew immediately it would take more than one day to see it all. There’s a lot to...More

The parking is just a level below where the garden is but it is accessible. My mom uses a walker and was able to easily walk.
