These gardens are huge. We stopped by on the way home from Holland with our six year old. You need a minimum of a few of hours if you want to see everything. He loved the kids area and he could probably spend the whole day there but we took the little tram tour and saw all the sculptures on... More

What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. This attraction has long been one of my favorite meeting places when gathering with friends. Scenic stroll through grounds rivaling some of the prettiest in the region.

Beautiful gardens and walkways and seasonal features at Christmas and summer concerts make this a prime destination to visit while in Grand Rapids. If you are here during Art Prize or when the butterflies are emerging, even better!

Spent the better part of the day touring the park and was amazed at the level of detail and how it is well manicured. Every corner you turn is something worthy of a picture. Will visit again and looking forward to attending a concert at the outdoor ampitheater. Well Done!!

Wow...this is a spectacular addition to the gardens. It will be wonderful to watch it mature. Great design and the history and meaning of some ears are beautiful.

We love the gardens. The kids love it too. Perfect place to enjoy some quality family time together. The grounds are so beautiful. Also a lovely place for a concert. Gotta go at least a couple times a year

This venue was a terrific treat. I had no idea how truly wonderful the Meijer Gardens would be. There are several different sections including a special indoor museum style exhibit of Japanese artifacts. There are smaller gardens for various types of plants and they were fabulous. I absolutely loved the carnivorous garden, but each different area was amazing. Outside there... More

Lots of outdoor sculptures here. Japanese garden is over 5 acres and has lots of beautiful features. Good food in the attached restaurant. Special area for children is quite large.

My favorite is to visit the Christmas trees, but the Chidren's Park is a true can't miss. My least fav. visit is for the butterflies, but perhaps my expectations were too high. Parking is a bit far away, but it is stroller friendly and a fun outing.
