The Tyler Botanical Garden at the Tyler Rose Garden
For many years Smith County Master Gardeners have been the caretakers for four demonstration gardens that occupy nearly four acres in the southern section of the Tyler Rose Garden. Master Gardener volunteers have maintained and improved the gardens, providing an engaging, tranquil, and educational setting for local residents and out of town visitors to the gardens.
On November 13, 2019 the Tyler City Council approved the designation of those demonstration gardens as the Tyler Botanical Garden at the Tyler Rose Garden. It’s of great significance that the City of Tyler finally has its own Botanical Garden which combined with the Tyler Rose Garden provides “beauty in every season”. Smith County Master Gardeners will continue to partner with Tyler Parks and Recreation and will promote the existence of the gardens which are always free admission to visitors.
A gala event is planned for sometime in 2021 to celebrate the official designation of the Tyler Botanical Garden.
