A wonderful place to spend some quality time either alone or with someone. Beautiful gardens. I have a two person membership to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, TX so I got in free with my reciprocal benefit which was wonderful. It is accessable using public transit. The #14 bus serves the Central West End station.

The Botanical Garden was beautiful as always. $8 for out-of-town adult. Tip: If you are visiting with people of different abilities then visit the inside gardens first. These have the wow factor and can be walked through fairly quickly. Then make your way around the little lake. Finally hit the sections that interest you on the way back. This insures... More

This Botanical Garden is very big, well run and obviously well funded. The planings, buildings...everything is above average. When they were there, they were setting up a Lantern display throughout the garden that will be featured at night during the coming summer months. It looked like it would be very interesting.

Expect to spend the day. This is a must see you you are visiting. You can walk or take a tram ride. Both are good. We had never done the tram and the info the tram guy gave was great. Bring your camera and expect to take lots of pics. Chinese Lantern festival going on now, another must see.

This is a beautiful, well-maintained, tranquil place. If you're in town or just on the south side, check it out. The neighborhood is thriving as many of the older homes are being rehabbed. Lovely getaway in the city!

We toured the gardens with various age family members. Pushing the wheelchair was very doable. The toddlers loved feeding the koi. The Lantern festival exhibits and beautiful grounds made this another wonderful experience.

Liked it all. Beautiful gardens. They currently are having a Japanese lantern festival which is beautiful. We went during the day, but I've heard that at night when the lanterns are lit it is even better.
