Discovering the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

Experience joyful wandering, stone pathways, perennials, cacti, stately oak and pecan trees, a meadow of carefree wildflowers and so much more at this Austin Wildflower Center.



A variety of gardens and habitats are laid out in a relaxed fashion at the Wildflower Center. Strategically placed benches and shady areas add much to the careful design, as visitors see a wetlands pond, a meandering stream, a courtyard garden, children’s garden, meditation gardens and a silo garden.
