My children and I visited the gardens on a Sunday when they do Child Craft. It was so beautiful and peaceful. Easily walked through and enjoyed in a few hours - is a great place to get away from the noisy city center.

Someone put together a scavenger hunt that children love - they even have ones for multiple ages. This is a great spot for families to visit.

Great place to relax and enjoy the scenery. It is an Austin gem that is usually booked up for wedding and such. But, if you get an opportunity to visit, please do. You won't regret it!

The garden provides a lovely, tranquil setting for the Umlauf sculptures. We definitely enjoyed our visit. Interesting to find out that Farrah Fawcett was a student of his at UT. Some of her works were on display in the visitor center.

We thought there would be pieces by many artists, but there were only pieces by Umlaut. This is a gorgeous setting, and the inside talks about Umlaut and his relationship with Farah Faucett and has photos and sculptures of her and about her, but overall...More

There are other places in Austin that might welcome such services, though. The Butterfly Garden and the Zilker Rose Garden, for ex.
