If you are in the Grand Rapids area, anytime of the year, Frederik Meijer Gardens is a must see to put on your list. And they keep on updating and improving things and soon, the incredible Japanese Garden will be open.

Everything about the Meijer Gardens is first rate. The children's area is a delight, and the trail to the wetland area offers a more rustic landscape. The sculptures make it more than just a garden. Really worth the visit.

A unique venue that combines sculpture and botanic gardens - and a lot more! There are butterflies in the spring, outdoor concerts in the summer, and Christmas trees and lights in the winter. There is a special area just for kids with tree houses, a rock quarry, a maze, and much more. There is an area that is dedicated to... More

If you're looking for excitement, this is not it. This is one of my favorite places to take guests from out of town regardless of age. We went in December where we we saw christmas trees decorated from around the world, a gorgeous "glass" exhibit and walked outside to see sculptures. ( The gardens in the summer can't be beat)...

Very nice but unless you become a member, you are limited as to what you can see. They have concerts in the summer but again, in order to get tickets before they run out, you need to join. Fee is $40 a year for an individual, $65 for a couple.
