Garvan Woodland Gardens, Hot Springs Reviews - Write a Review

  • The gardens are nice. Beautiful plants and trees, nice little hikes, and pretty view of the lake. We got to see the Christmas Lights at the Gardens which made our visit even better. It wasn't cheap but it was definitely worth visiting.

  • This place is beautiful. I definitely recommend it! I had such a great time and an excellent walk through the place. It's enormous. Buy food yo feed the fish. Treat yourself to lunch while your there too! The only thing I wish is that the gift shop had little souvenirs with their name on it. They just had items you could buy anywhere. Make sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes!

  • Absolutely nothing you can say negative about Garvan Gardens. The staff is so friendly and keep the place stunning! We loved the trails. You don't overexert yourself and there are plenty of places to sit for awhile if needed. Views are beautiful and the chapel at the end is awe-inspiring! Great job Garvan Gardens!!!

  • Beautiful place. It is in Fall color mode right now as the set up for Christmas. The people are very friendly, they have golf carts for those that cannot or do not want to walk. Walking through the gardens is great also. Plenty to see and pictures galore. It is a must see place in Arkansas

  • Wonderful gardens any time of the year. Spectacular during the Christmas lights season. Highly recommend going. Go early for parking and stay late to view.
