This was our 1st time here. Being somewhat disabled it is sometimes hard to find things to do, but the botanical gardens are mostly scooter/wheelchair accessible. It was nice to be outside and see the different gardens they offered, the butterfly room and other things. Would recommend for something to do for a day.

What's not to love. There's indoor and outdoor gardens. There are herbs and roses. Waterfalls. Butterflies. Bugs. Fountains. Mud...peace. It is beyond beauty. I don't even know what anyone would say negative.

The Costa Rican Rainforest is beautiful inside! There are lots of themed gardens outdoors, a beautiful rose garden, an herb garden, a japanese garden...and it super close to the Cleveland Art Museum!

I love botanical gardens, and this is such a nice one. The footprint of the gardens and paths is well thought out and easy to navigate. We spent a couple of hours enjoying the various types of gardens. Although it was a sunny day, there is plenty of shade to cool off in. I especially enjoyed the reflecting pool area,... More

Cleveland Botanical Gardens is nice for all ages. We went In July so disappointed that not a lot of perennials were blooming. Thought they might have supplemented with some annuals? Lego sculptures were terrific and well worth the visit. Not sure how long they will be there. Woodland Walk didn't have any flowers, just trees and bushes. Butterfly House was... More

The gardens were excellent both for adults and children. The butterfly house was very good as we're the Lego models of plants,flowers and birds. Parking is easy as is access, there is also a good food area. We'll worth the visit

This is a must see, with different garden rooms, incredible lego sculptures integrated throughout the site, interactive and educational displays for adults and children alike, and a lovely butterfly area that rivaled any I've seen elsewhere. It was a welcome break for me and I had just enough time (two hours) to see most of the gardens. I would return... More

This was a smaller size botanical garden than some we've seen but the butterfly exhibit was AMAZING! I was wishing that my granddaughters could have gone with us-they would have loved it! And looking at the outside of the huge glass area all lit up and glowing was gorgeous! Luckily we had decided to stay at the Glidden House which... More

I've visited many gardens in the US. Cleveland Botanical garden is okay but does not worth $11.00 per person. I've visited the garden at the end of 2014 summer. The garden has several exhibits reasonably maintained but too small and can include much more verities. You can finish it in 1/2 hr.
