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.

Might be beautiful in the spring and I understand they had been experiencing dry weather but it was nothing I would recommend. The girl working in the shop was very unfriendly. Not worth the entrance fee.

We did a spur of the moment visit after church and I had never seen so many Iris in my life! My only regret was that we did not have more time. If you adore flowers, would plan on at least a half day to...More

Fun outing and definitely worth a drive. Beautiful grounds, fun for children but would be a lovely daytime date as well.

We were on our way through Texas from Mississippi. We decided to take a stretch and saw a sign for this botanical park. "Okay, why not" we said. While it seemed to be in the middle of nowhere and didn't expect to see much, we...More

Even at the end of a dry summer, the Clark Gardens manages to provide an excellent sanctuary from the usual landscape. Fountains, roses, and beautifully maintained landscapes engulfed us is a day filled with fun and fantastic food!

A great place to walk with smooth trails, mobility impaired can easily move on the semi paved surfaces. Great photo op. Entire family friendly! Reasonable admission, though I don't recall the prices.

I have been visiting since moving to Weatherford. The place has grown and become even more beautiful. They keep adding more events and enlarging the facility. My husband and I have been members for five years. The place never disappoints me.
