Went here yesterday with my wife. Beautiful place with numerous plants, trees and flowers. Definitely take a tram ride which will give a nice description of many sculptures. The indoor plants grown in different climates are very cool. If you can plan ahead the outdoor concerts seem somewhat intimate and enjoyable.

Frederik Meijer Gardens is a must to see if you are visiting the Grand Rapids area. The gardens and the sculptures are truly a sight to see. We took the trolley ride to view the gardens; It's a true life saver if you have people in your party with limited mobility. There is a new Japanese Garden that is just... More

My wife and I walk the gardens often. When we take our Grandchildren, we have to drag them out. It is a beautiful place to stroll, relax and collect thoughts, as well as enjoy plants, sculptures, and special displays at various times in the year. We recently went through the newly opened Japanese Garden. Actually, we went through three times... More

Frederik Meijer Gardens should not be missed. The sculptures and gardens work together to form a magical place. Something for all ages. Too much to see in one day.

Can easily spend an entire day here. Great place for kids, as well. Make sure you visit new Japanese Gardens.

When in Western Michigan, make it a point to stop at Meijer Gardens. There is a new 4.Million dollar Japanese Garden. Chiuliy glass in the ceiling of the cafe. Great sculptures throughout. Wear walking shoes, take water. There is a tram. And outstanding children's garden.

Wound up here because my sister, a horticulturalist who loves to visit gardens, wanted to go. As soon as we got there I was surprised at how big, beautiful, and interesting it was! Tons of plants were in bloom when we were there and there was so much to see that during the couple hours we were there we didn't... More

Just plain wowsome. There is so much to see here. I have been visiting this place off and on for the last 15 year and I can tell you visiting it today leaves nothing lacking. You can easily spend 1/2 a day here. Just make sure you dont visit when it is 90 degrees outside as there is a lot... More

I was really impressed with the presentation of the Frederik Meijer Gardens. There are so many different things to see and do and even a children's area. There is also a tram that makes the entire area very accessible. Admission was $12 for adults and well-worth it.
