This place is best to see in the spring and summer time. Even though it is open all year. The best time is the spring and summer. The garden has a wide range of plants from all over the world. The gardens are breath taking and peaceful here. It hard to believe that this place is in the heart of... More

Remembering the days when the Garden was free, I don't like paying the admission fee, but honestly the place is worth it. The Western Reserve Herb Society Herb Garden is truly world class in design and variety of herbs. The Children's Garden is pure delight for adults--and children seem to find it a Nature's playground. The indoor exhibits are pleasant... More

Adults: $11.00 Children (3-12): $6.00 Children under 3: Free Gardens are well kept. Walkways and paths are clear of clutter. Special children's section. Many signs to explain what most of the plants / flowers you are looking at are called. Included in the admission cost is a Butterfly Habitat that you enter through the main lobby. It is a decent...

What a relaxing rainforest to walk through and enjoy as all the butterflies flutter around you! Other enjoyable areas but this part is a must see (and see again!)

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
