Bell Park Cacti Garden
Bell Park Cacti Garden is located in Hale Center, Texas. It was started in 1974 by the late Hershel Bell. At that time, it contained 15 plants. The garden has grown a bit, and now displays 350 plants, representing 15 species of cacti.
There is a walk-through path for viewing the cacti, and a grassy area with picnic tables. The garden isn't anything fancy, or something to go out of your way to see, but if you happen to be in the area, it might be a nice place to stop for a picnic. Just don't touch the prickly plants!
The garden is open from dawn to dusk. Admission is free.
