Clark Gardens is a true hidden gem in the North Texas Hill Country and is the perfect garden for your perfect day. The 35-acre public botanic garden is tucked away down a country road between Weatherford and Mineral Wells, just outside Dallas/Fort Worth. The gardens offer a variety of garden venues, green lawns, lakeside pavilions, two huge all-weather permanent reception tents, and a breathtaking sandstone chapel; all creating the ideal location for an unforgettable event. Each venue showcases its own charm with European-style fountains, waterfalls, blooms bursting with color, and nature in every corner. Whether you're planning an intimate gathering or a black-tie affair, Clark Gardens provides a natural beauty and classic elegance that cannot be matched.
Clark Gardens was founded on the blooming love story of Max and Billie Clark. When it came to their mutual love for gardens and nature, Max built anything Billie desired- She served as much of the inpiration for the gardens, lakes, pavilions, and fountains seen at Clark Gardens today. Billie passed away in September 2012, just a few weeks short of their 62nd wedding anniversary. Today at 86 years old Max continues his labor of love by working in the garden daily and carrying on what he started with his bride in 1972.
Billie left a legacy of beauty to North Texas- Clark Gardens has become an oasis to thousands year-round and is the starting point for couples as they begin their journey in marriage in the very spaces Max and Billie built together.
When it comes to service, Clark Gardens stays a step above the rest.
