Welcome to The Zilker Botanical Garden!

Zilker Botanical Garden — located on 26 fenced acres in Austin, Texas has often been called “the jewel in the heart of Austin”. Theme gardens such as the Rose, Herb and Japanese gardens are interconnected with streams, waterfalls and Koi-filled ponds, while the Hartman Prehistoric Garden recreates a Cretaceous dinosaur habitat.

This garden is a unique collaboration between The City of Austin Parks & Recreation Department (PARD), The Zilker Botanical Garden Conservancy (ZGBC), and the Austin Area Garden Council (AAGC). The garden is open to the public most days year-round and is enjoyed by over 125,000 visitors each year, including thousands of school children from Austin and the surrounding communities.
