Family Garden

The 4.5-acre Luci and Ian Family Garden is the only native plant garden developed for families in Central Texas.

The garden connects children and families to the natural world by providing more than a dozen interactive and educational features made of natural materials including a maze made of native shrubs, giant tree stumps for kids to climb on, a Fibonacci spiral, giant birds' nests made from native grape vines, a grotto with caves and a waterfall, a lawn designed with native turf, a creek with dinosaur footprints and water activities, and much more.
