Ruby M. Mize Azalea Garden Reviews

These gardens on the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University are a must visit. The paths are very wide and suitable for the whole family. When in bloom, the flowers are magnificent! Even when it’s not azalea season, the gardens still offer a nice shady stroll. There are sculptures and a wooden swing to stop and rest. Lanana Creek Trail runs through the gardens, so this could be a pitstop on a longer walk if you choose.
