The mission of The Gardens at Texas A&M University is to engage the community in a living teaching environment, encourage curiosity and discovery, and to develop wonder for the natural world.
The Gardens is a beautiful public garden and green space nestled on Texas A&M University's West Campus. Beginning with 27-acres, The Gardens strives to restore, preserve and develop the area and surrounding green space into a variety of themed spaces used for teaching, research, and extension programming, as well as engaging with the community. The first phase of development, seven acres called the Leach Teaching Gardens features 21 themed gardens. Currently, the design team is finalizing its plans for the second phase of development. The Gardens is a unique, vibrant part of campus that allows visitors and students alike to simultaneously enjoy and learn from the nature that surrounds them.
