The perennial gardens around the Interpretive Center have been planted with many spring bulbs and irises, as well as summer blooming hibiscuses, roses, and crape myrtles. Also in this area is a water feature, gazebo, and beautiful picnic area under the shade of a large pecan tree.
The Sensory Garden features a different bed for each of the five senses: sight, sound, smell, touch and taste.
The Wildflower Garden is currently being renovated through the assistance of a grant from the High Plains Water District. The Garden will have a wide variety of water-wise perennials as well as spring flowers including daffodils, poppies, larkspur and hollyhocks. Milkweeds have been planted to attract Monarch butterflies on their migration to Mexico.
The Community Garden is under development at the location of the former Hodges Rose Garden. It is on the north side of Hodges Community Center. You can access it by taking the walkway in front of St. Paul's Chapel or from the parking lot on the east side of the Center.
