It will take you more than two hours to see a substantial park of the Garden. It is totally worth every step as it is tremendously peaceful and parks of the Garden are just breathtaking. The Japanese Garden area is fantastic. The Rose Garden was even worth seeing even though it was past season. They have some kid friendly areas... More

Always a beautiful trip when we go to the Garden. Love the Japanese Festival and any time all the beautiful seasonal flowers and ponds and the Climatron is amazing. Wonderful for kids too. Never tire of it.

Have been here three times now and each time I am amazed. They have many festivals each year (my favorite was the one about Asian culture) just be prepared to do a lot of walking.

This is my favorite botanical garden across America! I no longer live in St Louis, but make it a priority to visit 1-2x a year. The garden is constantly changing and is a wonderful place to take a walk or find a favorite spot for meditation and reflection. The Japanese Garden here is amazing and worth the trip by its... More

I attended a gorgeous wedding at the Botanical Gardens this summer. The ceremony was in the Japanese Gardens, which is simply stunning. Guests were blessed to walk through the gardens on the way to the wedding, which was set up with an elegant white walkway and white wooden chairs. We then walked back to the reception in one of the... More

A beautiful walk through the gardens, tropical green house across the fish pond to the Japanese gardens for a rest on the benches. The trees were changing from green to orange to red and the scenery was magnificent. The Rose garden was surrounded by Chihuly glass artwork. There is a grand Chihuly lighting fixture in the 2 story entrance that... More

This place is huge. All different types of smaller gardens in the large one. The chinese garden is not large, but is very well done and on par with many in China. The Japanese garden is quite large, peaceful, with a lake in the center. You can feed the Koi and ducks. The ducks are pretty aggressive and will steal... More
