We make it a point to visit botanical gardens wherever we go. This one ranks in the top 25% of the ones we have visited. It's not the Kew or Butchart but it was thoroughly enjoyable.

If you enjoy being surrounded by beauty, the Botanical Gardens is the place to be. As I perused the perfectly manicured grounds, I was fascinated by the many varieies of flowers and grasses that were so strategically placed. Well worth the time spent there.

We quickly visited this park as we drove along the parkway to Niagara on the lake.The drive itself is lovely and it was pleasant to walk around the gardens.The cafe is okay .We had a look but didn't fancy on the menu.If you have children the butterfly attraction is located in the same spot.

We visited while it was still cold outside and it was such a nice retreat from the cold temperatures. It was as though we had stepped inside a tropical garden! The plants are very well tended, the colors are vibrant, and foliage and flowers are luscious. It was a treat for the senses and a thrill for avid gardeners!

Me and my spouse makes it a habit to take a carriage ride in every city we visit. We had the chance to do it at the Botanical Garden. Prices are around 20$ per person, plus 5$ for parking. The person driving the carriage was extremely friendly and was happy to answer any questions we had. He knew his botanicals.... More

We've been here before and wanted to go back this trip again. The butterfly forest is a treat to spend time in. The gardens are beautiful as your might expect from a horticultural school. Its a large place and will take a while to wander through. relax and enjoy.
