A trip to Meijer Gardens transports you to one of the loveliest places on earth. Gardens, scuplutres and walking trails are superlative. They offer many special events for families and children. Even the cafeteria is charming! Take the trolly tour so that you don't miss a thing. Always enjoyable, with world class offerings.

Enjoyed both the outdoor sculpture blanketed by snow, and the warmth of the conservatories. Lots of birds inside and out. My 16 year old enjoyed the conservatories as well.

If you love gardens and sculptures definitely go and see it. It is a very beautiful place to go to. It's well maintained and has a full size statue of Leonardo's horse.

Very nice. The gardens are relaxing and enjoyable year around. The gift shop is also very nice. I did not use the cafe this time, however lots of great options.

You don't need to be an art buff to enjoy the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park (although it helps). There is something here for everyone to enjoy - beautifully landscaped grounds and gardens, conservatories, a sculpture park especially for the kiddies, and, of course, sculptures of all kinds! Plan to spend a day here and take your time and... More

Around Christmas they do this beautiful display of Christmas trees from all over the world. So fun, plus the outdoor sections are beautiful in the winter!

Unbelievable! We are lucky to have a place like this to visit. Music, art and gardens all in one place. We enjoyed a summer concert and would go again.

We spend a couple hours at the gardens on Sunday - always a treat and perhaps even more so in the winter when there are fewer visitors and much of our time outdoors felt like we had the place to ourselves!! After a cold walk outdoors, the indoor greenhouse area was like Nirvana!! Brought our camera on this trip and... More

After spending an hour or so wandering around the gardens I couldn't help but be reminded of the Musee de Plein Air on the left bank of the Seine in Paris. Incredible works of art scattered around beautiful landscaped grounds, creating a sense of sculpture both of nature and of metal, stone, water and wood. Even the children's garden looked... More
