We returned once again for the orchid show. While the flowers were beautiful the execution of the theme...MardiGras was tacky at best. Tossing beads in every corner was pretty much the sum total of the decorations. We were also hounded by a volunteer to buy raffle tickets. The elevator from the parking garage was out of order requiring a multi... More

Escaped the 16 degree snowy windy atmosphere with a trip to CBG. Going home with 2 unusual orchids to add to our assortment. Great Valentines Day

My family loves CBG! The gardens in the spring and summer are spectacular. We had family photos taken there last spring with a rainbow of tulips. My dear friend also got married here and I was so impressed with how they transformed the reception hall. My kids love looking for frogs, making mud pies, and playing in the fountain in... More

Earlier this afternoon, my wife and I stopped in at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens here in Cleveland. The Glass House was pretty much the only thing open to walk through, as this being January, the gardens were closed. The exhibits in the glass house were impressive enough to see twice. The butterflies stole the show, and the birds added to... More

Step out of the cold and into a wonder land of beauty. Great place for picture taking. If you have cabin fever take a trip here.

I always wanted to visit and the free entry on MLK day gave me the opportunity. I'm sure it is splendid when you can also take in the outside gArdens. You can view the interior gardens in twenty minutes.

I love visiting botanical gardens, and seek them out wherever we travel, so I've had a chance to see some wonderful ones throughout the U.S. and the world. Cleveland's is far from the largest or most extensive, but it does a lot with the available space. The outdoor gardens are very nice, offering a surprising diversity of plants and aesthetics...

Paths wind through nine huge gardens. Roses were gorgeous. Herbs were interesting. The Japanese garden was unique. The woodland forest is serene. The children's garden was creative with its short potting bench, log stools, small trowels, a hand pump, and sandbox. Each of the nine youngsters there were totally engrossed in digging. I've been there in May and October. It... More

Beautiful Christmas display of lights outside, and a great collection of gingerbread houses and trees inside. A very enjoyable afternoon. I will return in the spring and summer for a walk around the gardens when they are in bloom.

We went through the interior rain forest gardens pretty quickly, as they aren't very large. The rest was decorated for the holidays. Too many gingerbread house displays for the out of towers, although I'm sure the local families got a kick out of contributing. The only thing that offsets the cost of admission here is that the Art Museum is... More
