The Houston Botanic Garden -- a 132-acre urban oasis and outdoor living museum that opened in September 2020 – is located along one of the Bayou City’s eponymous waterways on the site of a former municipal golf course. The Garden inspires and connects visitors with a curated collection of tropical, sub-tropical, and arid plants from around the world that reflect the city’s rich cultural and ethnic diversity.

With a mission to enrich life through discovery, education, and the conservation of plants and the natural environment, the Garden is more than just a pretty place. The Garden hosts nature-themed art exhibitions and a variety of classes and workshops in gardening, wellness, arts, and more. The Garden also has outdoor and indoor spaces – including two climate-controlled event tents with views of garden spaces – available for rent for a variety of different types of celebrations, from intimate weddings to corporate parties of up to 500 guests.

Highlights of a visit to the Garden – open 9-5 daily – include the a stroll through the one-acre Culinary Garden – where seasonal edible and medicinal plants rotate in and out year-round, and freshly harvested produce is made available free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis periodically – and checking out the hands-on water play section of the Susan Garver Family Discovery Garden.
