Garvan Woodland Gardens Reviews & Ratings

  • Beautiful and amazing hiking trails! Very nice employees and a wonderful, nice lady that gave out maps and explained the trails to me! It's so amazing I'm gonna make plans to return to see it at night when it's open for viewing! The Christmas lights and displays will open for viewing starting the last week in November! It cost $15 to take the walking tour and (may I say) it was very much worth it! Highly Recommend for family or individual viewing! Amazing Children's area! A beautiful tree house you want believe!

  • Words and pictures will never do justice. You just have to go to experience it for yourself. This place is absolutely beautiful. Went in October & the weather was perfect. Admission cost $15/person. The trails were easy to follow through with the map. I think it was worth every penny.

  • This is one of the most beautiful places to go in the fall to see the changes in the colors of the leaves. It also has a 'see through" chapel that you have to see. It's remarkable and unbelievable. There's another one in north Arkansas too. I promise that you won't regret finding this place.

  • This is a magnificent garden, possibly the best I've visited. The main paths are easy to navigate and the off shoots are easy to find and walk also. The view points are good and the architecture, especially in the Childrens Garden is beautiful. Anyone looking for an amazing wedding chapel needs to check out the Anthony Chapel it is spectacular. Even the food at the Chipmunk Cafe was good. Try the Ruben. We'll be back for the holidays when they light up the garden.

  • My husband and I are here on a weekend getaway. We are from Crowley Louisiana. We absolutely enjoyed walking around taking in the beautiful surroundings. We weren't able to walk all the trails because we didn't have enough time. If we come back for a vacation we'd love to return.
