Jewel in the 💚 of Austin

Zilker Botanical Garden is located on 28 acres nestled within Zilker Metropolitan Park in the heart of downtown Austin. This "jewel in the heart of Austin" features heritage live oaks set into a hillside, and offers a lush, shady respite from everyday urban life with panoramic views to downtown and beyond. The Garden is open to the public most days year-round and is enjoyed by over 150,000 visitors each year, including locals, tourists, and thousands of school children from Austin and the surrounding communities.

Taniguchi Japanese Garden

Hartman Prehistoric Garden


Themed gardens include the Taniguchi Japanese Garden, The Riparian Streambed, The Hartman Prehistoric Garden, and the Mabel Davis Rose Garden. These and other gardens are woven together with pathways, streams, and Koi-filled ponds, creating an urban oasis full of shaded hideaways, sunny lawn areas, and thousands of native and cultivated plants. 


Zilker Botanical Garden is managed as a public-private partnership between the City of Austin Parks & Recreation Department (PARD) and the Zilker Botanical Garden Conservancy (ZBGC). Through an agreement between the Conservancy and the Austin Area Garden Council, AAGC brings the resources of its 30 garden clubs to this partnership.
