The gardens are immaculate and just beautiful. It was hot, so we didn't stay as long as we would have wanted.

Just go. It's a gem! Art, gardens, wildlife, education all in one package. Very well done. The cafe is great too. Concerts during the summer are a must-do if you can. A true asset to Grand Rapids.

The Sculpture garden is a "must see". I suggest taking the $3 Tram trip. Tour guides are so full of information....made each exhibit, come to life.

The Gardens are lovely, and a beautifully maintained place to spend some quiet time strolling and enjoying the outdoors. The sculptures are quite varied, and provoke some interesting conversations. There is a dedicated children's garden area, as well, with a Mouse Hole entrance! A kettle pond, farmhouse, and much more to pique your interest dot the large acreage.The main building... More

I went there around 3 pm in an August afternoon, it was so hot that I didn't finish the walk in the garden.

The gardens are a place for everybody, families, friends, couples, etc. It is ever changing with new exhibits all of the time. Concerts in the summer, and Christmas trees from around the world in the winter. And we can't forget the butterfly exhibit in the springtime. A new Japanese garden in coming in the near future. You don't have to... More

I visited with my husband and a group of friends. We all enjoyed ourselves. There was less good garden viewing than I had hoped for. As a master gardener who regularly volunteers at MSU's horticultural gardens I was hoping to see perennial gardens that would give me lots of good ideas and perhaps introduce me to something new, but this...

If you enjoy gardens, this is a must see! It did not seem we were there for 3 hours. Go early and your able to take better pictues with less visitors. Both my boyfriend and I enjoyed these gardens. Very clean and everything is kept up to par. Started getting a little busier around 11:30 - 12noon. We want to... More

I love Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. I have been here maybe five times. What I did not realize is that they actually change things each year. Some of the changes are subtle, but if you pay attention, there are new sculptures each time. They also change themes and exhibits inside the building. The gardens are beautiful and I also... More

The gardens are extensive so a rather modestly priced tram will take you to the highlights. There is even a kids tram and kids garden play area which is terrific. We walked the gardens and saw it all! The neat little paths leading to beautiful outdoor sculpture as well as the sumptuous sculpture meadows. There is a farmstead to tour... More
