As an oasis in the desert, Thanksgiving Point Gardens features 55-acres of stately gardens, grand lawns, as well as the largest manmade waterfall in the Western Hemisphere. Come rejuvenate yourself and enjoy nature’s beauty in these secluded gardens.
Stroll through the 15 themed gardens to enjoy the cascading fountains in the Italian Gardens, get a bird’s eye view of the gardens from the Vista Garden, feed the fish at Koi View Pier, and discover the Secret Garden. You can even rent golf carts or Segways for another way to “stroll” through the gardens.
Be sure to visit in April at our most popular event at Thanksgiving Point, the annual Tulip Festival. More than 250,000 tulip bulbs from Holland are planted in our gardens and bloom in the spring with a rainbow of colors and varieties. The festival is a must-do and is filled with gardening demonstrations, photo contests, live music, and vendors.
