Welcome to 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 rose, herb and Japanese garden are interconnected with streams, waterfalls and Koi-filled ponds. The Hartman Prehistoric Garden recreates local dinosaur habitat.

This garden is a unique collaboration between The City of Austin Parks & Recreation Department (PARD) and the Austin Area Garden Council (AAGC). The garden is open to the public most days year-round and is enjoyed by over 100,000 visitors each year, including thousands of school children from Austin and the surrounding communities.
