    My sister was visiting from Colorado and I took here there yesterday, 1/19/15, afternoon. I was going to pay for us to get into the Japanese Garden, however, we were not able to get in. The lady at the front said we can’t get in to do photoshoot, which was not the case. We wanted to just go in and see and maybe take a few photos. We were a party of 4 with just a regular digital camera. No other photo equipment was with us. Photoshoot and taking photos are two different things. I am not a photographer. Everyone was dressed in either shorts or leggings and t-shirts except for my sister who had a casual dress on. We were denied getting into the garden, which I’m not happy about because I was just planning on showing her the garden and having my husband take some pictures with me and her before she leaves to go back to Colorado. This was my first time there at the garden and I can’t even get in. Therefore, I am making this complaint and hope to spread the word to others to not take anyone there to that garden. I could understand someone paying $75 an hour for photoshoots. To me, photoshoots would be a photographer who has a really nice and expensive camera and photo equipments. The person at the front said my sister can’t go in dressing the way she did. All she had on are some heels with a flowing dress that anyone could wear during the summer. I have some friends who were able to get in before dressing like that or even in matching color outfits without having to pay $75. I’m not happy about my experience there and will never return again or recommend anyone else to take their visitors there.

    This is a beautiful botanic garden. I come here almost every spring to look at flowers. Sometimes, I stop by this garden on my way to Abilene. The botanic garden is just right off Interstate 30. Very convenient for me to exit the freeway to look into this garden before I continue west towards Abilene to see my friends.

    Wow – that Japanese Garden is the best I’ve seen anywhere! Incredible koi in the water, beautiful plant material, arched bridges – it is all here. The kids had a great time too.

    The botanic gardens are really nice, but the Japanese gardens is what really make these gardens stand out.
