I had read about this site in The Cleveland Plain Dealer and was curious. It's one of those places that is invisible even though it's in front of your face. The entrance is very hard to find, but trust your GPS - it's there. The main attraction is realizing that it was one individual that built this place up starting... More

I hadn’t been to Gardenview in a few years and went the other day with my mother, husband, and fourteen year old son. I was saddened to hear that the primary caretaker, since 1949, had died at the beginning of this year. The other caretaker, who has been working there for 18 years, is still toiling over the property. It... More

The gardens may have been a lovely place to visit in the past but the owner died in early 2014 and they have sadly deteriorated. Any large garden is a lot of work to tend and it appears that this garden is woefully understaffed in order to maintain it in a condition that is commensurate with charging addition. The greenhouses... More

These gardens are worth a trip any time of year. Hidden behind a wall on the busy main street through town, you find quiet beauty along garden paths. Stop for a bit - get away from the stresses of your busy life, relax with nature in this botanical paradise, and then you can go back to the hustle and bustle... More

Gardenview is the unique inspiration of the Henry Ross and his pursuit of an island of beauty in a sea of monotony. Strongsville is hardly a quaint French (or American) village. Rather it is bland and similar to many other suburban communities that are laced with fast food franchises, big box stores, and shopping malls. It wasn't always this way,... More

We were in a Strongsville Hotel for a nearby wedding and were looking to kill a few hours in an area we didn't know. This place was absolutely beautiful, stunning really. It was so lush and had so much gorgeous variety. A definite Secret Garden type feel.

The trails just keep drawing you further in to the next beautiful and serene vantage point. Quiet and lovely with amazing plants and the freedom to wander at will among nature. The best part is realizing that one human being is responsible for all that beauty and it inspires me to do more myself to bring beauty to my own... More

Gardenview Horticultural park is an amazing place to visit. It's very quiet, serene, and highlights the local natural beauty. There are many winding paths, tons of foliage, trees, ponds, and wildlife. Great for an afternoon stroll with the family. It's the Metroparks on steroids. My daughters love watching dragonflies, butterflies, frogs, and other wildlife.
