This is one of our absolute favorite van day adventures! It is the legacy of Lady Bird, LBJ's wife. It wasn't always where it is now. It used to be located on East Austin until it moved south in 1995. It is the best place to learn about plant conservation and sustainability in our city. Kids learn about flowers, plants and their importance while enjoying a hike and lots of interactive places to play around! The center is open year round and the bright colors will definitely change depending on what is in season.
Our kids have a blast going through the tree stumps, taking photos near the waterfall and visiting the teepees. They also love when we are allowed to help water the plants!
While you can take a self guided tour, they also offer some guided tours. They are open daily from 9am to 5pm. Make sure to visit their site to check what's in season, and reserve your guided tour if that is what you like!
