We've toured this once & been to a wedding once. Lovely sculptures, interesting history; beautiful setting; a bridge.

I had been expecting to spend an hour or more in a much larger sculpture garden with sculptures by many different artists and was somewhat taken aback when I realized the small scale of the grounds. At the time of my visit, the vast majority...More

There are other places in Austin that might welcome such services, though. The Butterfly Garden and the Zilker Rose Garden, for ex.
