As the forest awakens in the small East Texas town of Palestine, a magical path welcomes spring to Davey Dogwood Park. Wandering along a one-mile trail, if you look close enough, you might spot a fairy garden tucked at the bottom of a tree, beneath a fallen branch or along a riverbank. Each year, a new colony of fairy garden homes appear in the park attracting hundreds of guests to view the tiny homes nestled throughout the dogwoods in bloom.
Made from natural, biodegradable materials such as pinecones, beans, twigs, rocks and sand, these gardens are open to the public for viewing March 17 through April 30, 2023. Visitors can enjoy this enchanting and free experience at Davey Dogwood Park daily from dawn to dusk. 4205 N Link Street Palestine, Texas 75801.
