Zilker Botanical Gardens Entry Gate

Zilker Botanical Gate: night view

Forged Steel

This gateway design illustrates a profusion of flora representing the most noteworthy plant types in the Gardens. Eighteen-foot sections at the main entrance present a memorable first impression of the gardens as seen from Barton Springs Road and contribute to the visual character of Zilker Park. Desert and woodland plants are expressed in a naturalistic collage inspired by the aspirations of the garden club members who volunteer to care for the gardens.  Fabricated in collaboration with Herrera Ironworks.
