Richard Greene Linear Park could not be a more perfect place.  Tree lined paths, the Caelum Moor sculptures, a lake on the north side, Ranger Stadium on the east and Cowboy Stadium on the west...truly a breath taking site.  On Memorial Day Weekend the park transforms into an art lover's paradise.

LBJ Wildflower Center Exhibit

  • LBJ Wildflower Center Exhibit

The mission of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is to increase the sustainable use and conservation of native wildflowers, plants and landscapes.

Lady Bird Johnson, our former first lady, and actress Helen Hayes founded an organization in 1982 to protect and preserve North America's native plants and natural landscapes. First as the National Wildflower Research Center and later as the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, this special place exists to introduce people to the beauty and diversity of wildflowers and other native plants. Every day, the Wildflower Center brings life to Mrs. Johnson's vision in its public gardens, its woodlands and sweeping meadows as well as in internationally influential research. In 2006, the Center became an Organized Research Unit of the University of Texas at Austin.

Art and flowers deserve to be together all the time. The Wildflower Center hosts many exhibits featuring the work of Central Texas artists and photographers, as well as the work of prominent nature artists from around the world.
