    Touring the gardens

    Garvan Gardens IS SO DOG FRIENDLY! Lots of roam to explore & take in the sights! Also quite a few twigs/sticks to chew on along the way.

    Great fun with the dog!

    Lots of pretty, picturesque views, and plenty of room to bring the dog. She had plenty to see and smell, and we spent several enjoyable hours exploring. She was worn out by the time we left (a very hard thing to do), but we all loved it.

    It’s A “must” If You’re Visiting Hot Springs With A Dog

    We had an amazing time with our dog here. It’s a lovely place with lots of interesting terrain to explore.

    LOVE Garvan Woodland Gardens!

    I've not found a more enjoyable way to spend the day with my dog or anyone else for that matter. This place is always beautiful. The tulips in the spring are breathtaking! Dogs are allowed almost everywhere in the gardens except the chapel, and maybe the treehouse. Lunch from the Chipmunk Café is always very good. We cannot get enough of this lovely place. Can't wait for the heat to go away so we can visit again soon.

    Great place to wear out your dog!

    We were visiting Hot Springs with Red, and we wanted him to have some fun too before we went off to do human-only things. He loved this park, and he was plenty worn out when we finished walking all the trails. (So was I.) His favorite activity was watching the coy. The park says that they have several dog watering stations throughout the park, but we never saw one. We finally let Red drink from a rocky creek bed that he could reach without stepping into in.

    A Days Adventure

    Absolutely the best day spent at Hot Springs. The garden is wonderful and our German Shepherd enjoyed her time sniffing all the wonderful scents. This place is the best dog friendly place to visit. ALSO stop by Chipmunk Cafe for a great lunch outside! Great food and service. Highly recommend this excellent garden.
