Directions

From IH-10 on west side of Beaumont take the Walden Road Exit and go south on Walden Road.  Come to a traffic signal at intersection of Walden and Fannett Road (Hwy. 124) and continue straight.  Street name changes to Tyrrell Park Road.  Continue about 1 mile to Babe Zaharias Drive and turn left into the park entrance.  The gardens will be on your left.

Grounds

This 23.5-acre garden of ever-changing beauty is located near the entrance to Tyrrell Park, a 500-acre City of Beaumont Park.  A paved Friendship Walk offers excellent views of the various theme gardens, as well as providing easy access for strollers and wheelchairs.  Benches along the way invite visitors to rest a moment and “take time to smell the flowers.”  The Beaumont Council of Garden Clubs raises funds for development and maintenance of the gardens, and oversees the management of the gardens. 

 

Views from the parking area:  Vi’s Fountain centers the parking lot.  The Bert & Jack Binks Horticultural Center offers a collection of original botanical art to enjoy.  The Warren Loose Conservatory houses tropical and rain-forest plants from around the world.  The Marydell Scott Fountain Plaza flanks one side of the Binks’ Center.  Our large meeting building is in the center.  The “In God We Trust, United We Stand, September 11, 2001 Memorial Garden” is a special feature facing the parking lot.  These gardens are located in a migratory bird flyway, with lots of year-round birds as well, offering a great place for bird watching.  Tyrrell Park is listed on the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail map.
