I really enjoyed our trip. These gardens are smaller than the botanical gardens in St. Louis, where my husband and I grew up, but they are equally beautiful. We really enjoyed the special tree house exhibit which was fun for kids and adults alike. The Chilean Rain-forest was fantastic- particularly because we had the opportunity to see the daily butterfly... More

Like a mini world tour, there are gardens dedicated to the orient, to the dessert, to a rainforest. Every way you point the camera it looks like a postcard! There's a fun scavenger game for the kids to play to keep them entertained throughout the gardens (besides in the kids garden). Parking is easy and safe for this building.

My husband and I came here with our three month old daughter. She was asleep in the stroller for the indoor exhibits. My husband and I personally enjoyed the indoor glass houses. The outdoor gardens were beautiful and our daughter loved looking around as well. The gardens look to be increasingly more fun for children slightly older (starting from toddlers).... More

Its a small botanical garden but its gorgeous, everything is very well planned and the colors and gardens are very well taken care. There is a part for small kids to have fun and get wet and another part with treehouses that interests not only kids but adults as well. Also the Glass house is amazing!!!!

I loved the Monteverde Cloud Forest and the Madagascar dessert. It was a great combination and it invited people to give those two countries a chance. Opposite sides of the world in one large glass house. Great potential and a chance to create awareness so people would some how contribute with the conservation of such delicate and endangered forests.

Took 50+ independent adults. Everyone has a favorite way to explore and learn. The Botanical Gardens have enough options to please everyone. We went on a weekday to avoid crowds. The staff was available if questions came up. Food was a bit over priced but fresh and tasty. If you have the extra bucks and an adventurous taste palatte plan... More

I thought- paying to walk through a garden- what a waste. I was so wrong. I really enjoyed it and my wife practically had to drag me out. It was interesting, relaxing, enjoyable and worth a trip to University Circle. My kids are spread out in ages but all really enjoyed it.
