a jewel in the heart of austin

Zilker Botanical Garden is nestled within Zilker Metropolitan Park in the heart of downtown Austin. Our themed gardens including the Taniguchi Japanese Garden, Hartman Prehistoric Garden, and Rose Garden, are all interconnected with pathways for all ages and abilities. With heritage live oaks, streams, and Koi-filled ponds, the Garden offers a peaceful respite in the middle of our busy city.

Introducing Holly Hawk, the Zilker Botanical Garden Conservancy’s new Development Director!

As Development Director, Holly’s focus is building relationships in support of our mission. She has served in several leadership roles in non-profits throughout Austin and is passionate about growing the Garden alongside her hometown. 

Since Holly joined the team in October, the Conservancy has cultivated our first major donor and we have raised over $195k towards our mission. We are very excited about the progress we’re making toward reaching our goals and look forward to what 2023 has in store!
