An Idea Generating Place

I really enjoy visiting Zilker Botanical Park because it’s such a beautiful place. It has a nice variety of different plants, flowers and trees and ponds among various things. It is divided into sections such as the prehistoric section or the Japanese garden.

Sometimes they have nice events that make the walk around more engaging. For example, one of the visits I remember the most was the time they had fairy houses hidden in between the trees and foliage. They had little doors and windows, or little beds. They looked like some real fairy lived there. It was a very nice experience. The Zilker Botanical Garden is quiet and peaceful but also fun and engaging which makes it a great place to find inspiration.
