GARVAN WOODLAND GARDENS, ARKANSAS

Garvan Woodland Gardens is a busy place in the spring.  I had been seeing many beautiful photos taken of the tulips in bloom so when I make a quick trip when visiting my daughter in Hot Springs.


It is a 210-acre botanical garden located at 550 Arkridge Road approximately 6 miles from Hot Springs National Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas, USA. It is owned by the University of Arkansas and open every day for a fee. (information listed at end of post)


Bring a picnic lunch and spend the day enjoying the flowers, water features, fish, and don't forget to bring you camera.
