historic site

Gravel path through bamboo forests, ponds with alligators, and beautiful flowers. There's even a statue of Buddha that was imported from Asia. Bird City is amazing when the time of the year is right. You can take a tour of the Tabasco plant, taste different foods in the country store (I suggest the jalapeno ice cream), and eat at the restaurant.

Fantastic garden for exploring! Larger than expected and well maintained. I found it was very easy to navigate on foot even without a map. Check it out!

This was a beautiful walk. The gardens are very well maintained and offer a diverse viewing experience. I suggest walking over driving through but they offer both.

très beau mais correspond plus à une ballade qu'à un trail. Animaux visibles dont des alligators si on est patient et observateur

Very easy and nice hike. Tickets-$8.00 per Adult / $5.00 per child. Beautiful Live Oaks with Spanish moss throughout the gardens. Highly recommend to check Tabasco factory tour ($5.50)and taste raspberry Tabasco ice cream as well.

I really liked this hike. You can drive it or walk it. I would be careful with kids and pets! We saw a lot of alligators! We saw between 10-20 of them!

Great drive through the gardens with lots of wildlife. Love the Chinese garden with the 900+ year old Buddha statue inside the temple. Don’t forget about the Tabasco Factory tours right next door to the gardens.
