We love this place and go when we are in town. Its wonderful for all ages. There is a lot of walking and exploring to do so wear proper shoes. There are also so many spots to stop, sit and relax. We had a wonderful afternoon there with our 10 and 7 year old girls. They are always changing and... More

My husband and I have a membership to Bok Tower in Lake Wales FL and we happen to meet another couple from Michigan who recommended that we visit Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park. We were born and raised in Michigan but had never been there. It was a great place to explore and there are concerts too. The grounds are... More

We first experienced Meijer Gardens in the dead of winter. The clerk at our hotel told us that visiting the gardens was a must...any season. He was right! Even in February, the experience was phenomenal. In the winter you can enjoy the tropical, desert and carnivorous plants located indoors. The grounds, were so beautiful in February that we decided coming... More

One of the most beautifully landscaped sculpture gardens in the US or perhaps even the world! Works by Rodin and Moore and many others in impeccably kept outdoor environment. Children's garden with many interesting, fun displays and interactive activities. A small indoor museum, indoor conservatory gardens. Cafe with interesting and delicious food featuring a glass ceiling sculpture by Chihuly.

Have been to Grand Rapids several times...finally checked out Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park with my mother and daughter. It exceeded all of our expectations and I cannot wait to go back. The park is large, with an indoor conservatory and expansive grounds, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes. The gardens are spectacular in both design and maintenance.... More

So grateful that the Meijer's gifted all of us with such a beautiful venue. Reasonably priced for families and seniors, these gardens are a treat to all. A fun way to learn more about plants and gardens. And the menu offered at the cafeteria was healthy and reasonably priced.

The FMG&SP was the highlight of our four day trip to Grand Rapids/Holland, MI. This is one of the most beautiful, spectacularly designed sculpture parks and gardens that you are likely to see this side of Europe. We were totally awed by the beautiful flowers and world-renowned works of art. Be sure to take the 45" tram ride ($3) for... More
