I love going to Vander Veer Park in the middle of winter. It has a lovely view both inside and outside of the conservatory. Inside you can see and smell spring flowers and outside the frozen pond, the snow covered trees are beautiful. If you go in the summer, it's great to take a picnic, take a walk around the... More

This place is small and quaint. We loved our visit. It was only $2.00 entrance fee. It was a lot of fun going through all the greenhouses in the back and exploring all the plants.

We enjoyed seeing the black squirrels and bright autumn colors and beautiful fountains. The greenhouses were filled with bright mums, orchids, topiaries.

This is a rather small area but it really stands out in this city. The park itself is quite beautiful, but the botanical aspect is charming. Explore all the areas and you will find some hidden surprises!

Although not a huge park, it is really worth visiting -- beautiful rose garden, fascinating greenhouses to visit and a very lovely walk through the trees.
