Toledo Botanical Gardens is over 66 acres of beautiful gardens! From the herb garden to the rose garden, the quiet walking paths, the pond, the gazebo! It is peaceful and a lovely place to visit. It is fun to visit the small "houses" and watch the glass blower, visit the little shop and dont' miss the Lithopane museum!

The garden grounds are very beautiful and fun to explore. Most everything is extremely well maintained and it's generally easy to keep some space between yourself and other visitors.

Toledo Botanical Garden is a beautiful living exhibition with remarkable displays of flowers, plants, shrubs, sculptures, and trees. Some plants showed signs of weather distress but that's nature. The Garden is open year-round during daylight hours. Admission and parking are free! Take your comfortable shoes because there is a great deal to see. We enjoyed the Perennial Garden, Pioneer Garden... More

if you have an hour or just want to get away but not leave the city...a really peaceful and lovely space. A small gift shop with incredibly low priced items from local artists.

Went with my wife to relax. The flowers are just beautiful. Just a gem in toledo. Very relaxing. I suggest you bring a picnic and go for a long walk.

I have to be honest, entering your like " what's those buildings over there for " needs more signage.. The gardens are great I suppose if you like plants... To a guy, it's a treat to share with lady company

The large space is divided into different areas. We were fortunate to catch the Peter Navarre's pioneer cabin open because a youth group had just gone through. The perennial garden was nice, and the woodland garden with gazebos was a real treat -- one of the few places with seating in the shade on a hot day!

I enjoyed the fountain, flowers, and scenery, but the walking paths were lacking. Overall, it was a decent experience for free botanical gardens.

We visited the gardens on a Saturday evening. The gardens are free. They are not very big but they have some nice flowers, plants, and trees. There were a couple weddings going on at the time, but we still had plenty of space to walk around.
