The Botanical gardens have such lovely flora from around the world and have it displayed so nicely that all can enjoy. It is so relaxing to take in all of the lovely plants, trees, cacti, and flowers while chatting with a friend, family or alone. There is much to see and it even serves as a nice date venue!

If you are looking for an affordable and fun activity to do in the city then look no further than the botanical conservatory! They have tons of different plants and 3 unique climates in separate rooms. Very neat activity!

We visited the conservatory recently and were welcomed by butterflies and such interesting plants in each of the 3 growing climates. My family and I strolled slowly through each room enjoying the plants, trees and flowers within each climate. The waterfalls are such nice additions to rooms with different levels of plants to enjoy at each level.

We have been there twice. It's a nice place to spend an hour or so walking around. They have 3-4 main areas and occasionally a special exhibit.

Very peaceful. Especially nice when you visit during the holidays. Christmas seems to be the best, with all the poinsettas. Also nice when they have the butterfly exhibit.

Interesting experience to visit during the holidays. I suspect it has more additions then through out the year. Will perhaps visit during a different season.

Visiting family we were looking for a pleasant place where we could share time together and stroll through the garden displays. When we were there the local Bonsai Club was displaying their projects, very interesting and informative. There were also some outdoor vegetable and herb plantings and places to just hang out. A nice find in the city.

This was in my mind disappointing. I failed to see anything really Egyptian about the garden . There could be an improvement in the signing of the areas. Maybe the emptiness when I vivited showed the general feeling A pity

Physically small and manageable, but well done. Showplace displays change regularly, along with a permanent tropical and desert exhibits. Also available as venue for weddings and parties at a reasonable charge. Annual butterfly display is a highlight. Nice gift shop. Close to other attractions.

It's nice but nothing over the top. The Christmas Grinch display is fun for younger kids. We've gone a few different times. Very affordable activities when people come to visit
