Texas SmartScape® Demonstration Gardens
The Texas SmartScape gardens at the Environmental Education Center is a learning environment that incorporates the site's natural habitats and topography as an interactive, educational demonstration focused on drought-tolerant landscaping and water-efficient irrigation.
This garden showcases native and well-adapted plants for the North Texas area. Visitors learn how to conserve and preserve the health of water and soil. It features a meandering trail, artwork made of recycled materials and intimate areas perfect for conversation.
Free & Open to the Public
The gardens are free and open to the public every day during daylight hours. They are available for rental and provide a lovely outdoor setting for private events and business functions. See here for more information.
