This is a great little place. Free! My kids like exploring and learned the life lesson of do not touch cacti. Very nice in late winter for a warm respite. Orchids are gorgeous, and in Spring the tulips are very pretty too.

This is a hidden gem for Cleveland! Tucked away near University Circle, this will amaze. Kids of all ages, adults, and all abilities will enjoy this. Perfect place for family pictures as well! No fees to enter, and no fees to take photos! Great quiet sport to study, reflect, or get away!

As most Clevelander's know, the area in January is not kind nor conducive to out entertainment. However, one can easily get to close to the feeling with a trip to the Cleveland Greenhouse. On the coldest winter day the greenhouse offers 5 large rooms of "outdoor" greenery at temperatures fit for a summer's outing! Enjoy the surroundings, the temperatures and... More

It is open year round from 10 am to 4 pm. It is free to visit. There are amazing orchid and tropical displays as well as seasonal flower displays which change. Great place to clear your mind and enjoy nature.

The garden is free as is parking so I would definitely suggest taking an afternoon to visit this little gem in Cleveland. If you are in the University Circle area or showing out of town visitors the city take half an hour or so to explore the gardens. The grounds and indoor greenhouse are showing their age but there are... More

This is a relatively small but very pleasant greenhouse set in the Rockefeller gardens. The greenhouse is well maintained, but the surrounding gardens could use some TLC. Volunteers were working on some of the beds while we visited; we expect the City cannot afford much in the way of maintenance. The Garden for the Blind is a lovely concept but... More

The greenhouse has become my preferred first stop when I host out of town friends. It is just a short drive from the Museums at University Circle, admission is free, and the seasonal displays of flowers just make a person feel good!

This is a great, free place to catch your breath and slow down. No matter the season, the greenhouse is a wonderful place visit. I have taken my church youth group here as part of our annual Cleveland Adventure Day and the kids always comment about how cool the place is.

This is a nice little greenhouse, especially during Cleveland’s long winter months when you need to remember that spring is just around the corner. The flowers are changed seasonally. There is a cactus room, orchids and various ponds. And there are usually orange, limes and/or lemons on the trees. Outside, there is an Asian garden and a garden for the... More

If you want picture perfect grounds and everything marked with wonderful garden after garden to see, this is not it. I enjoyed the couple gardens and the greenhouses and think it is worth a stop. But this is a working greenhouse for the city. On their behalf it has rained here a lot and keeping these grounds perfect are not... More
