Texas Discovery Gardens

Texas Discovery Gardens is one of the oldest botanical institutions in Texas. Built in 1936 as the Hall of Horticulture for Texas' Centennial Exposition in Fair Park - Dallas, the 7.5-acre campus includes the first public conservatory in the Southwestern United States. The mission of Texas Discovery Gardens is to have a positive impact on the future of Texas by teaching people effective ways to restore, conserve and preserve nature in the urban environment through the use of native and adapted plants that illustrate the interrelationship of Butterflies, Bugs and Botany.
