Beaumont Botanical GardensThis 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 gardens are located in a migratory bird flyway, with lots of year round birds as well, offering a great place for bird watching.Through fundraisers and donations from generous individuals, organizations, and businesses, the Beaumont Council of Garden Clubs developed and maintains the area. As you stroll through the gardens you will note that many features are in memory of people who have contributed to the gardens. Their generosity makes this gift to our area and to visitors from near and far possible. This is the oldest public garden in Southeast Texas. We hope you enjoy your visit, return often, and bring your family and friends.
