The Garvan Gardens are quickly becoming an international destination. This 210 acre woodland botanical garden astounds visitors with their beauty. It’s one of our favorite places to visit in Hot Springs. I’m looking forward to taking my one-year-old grandson for photos in the tulips.
Guests often ask how long it takes to see the gardens. To walk all of the trails, and the bird sanctuary, one could spend all day. Generally, we plan to spend a couple of hours and focus on different parts of the gardens each time we visit.
