It's a beautiful place but needs a little more upkeep. Its free so you really can't complain. It has a 1837 cabin on the property but unfortunately you couldn't go in it. The perennials are beautiful tho and its worth a visit if you're in the area.

This is a great place to take special occasion pictures (weddings, proms, etc.). There is a stream, a bridge, cool walls with windows, and of course, beautiful flowers and plants. There are even mini concerts on certain days in the summer. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy sun or shade, you won't be sorry.

Visiting the TBG I stumbled upon their formal Herb garden. What a beautiful place. The garden I discovered is maintained by the herb society and master gardener volunteers. It is broken up,into several beds and is beautifully laid out. Most plants are labeled . I will return to see it in late summer

It is a lovely garden and easy to walk through. I was impressed with the sculptures and metal art work displayed there. There are nice areas outside to sit down and rest. If you go during the week day it is less crowded.

The garden is huge, very spacious and there is a lot to see. The worker in the visitor center was extremely helpful. The lithophane gallery is something that should not be missed...incredible really!! Great places for nature lovers of all ages.

A great place to let the kids run. The flowers and shrubs are picturesque. We had family pictures taken here and the flowering plants did not disappoint. No cost and free parking.

I could tell this place is just beautiful in the spring and summer season. We were in the area and just decided to walk thru it. Wasn't much to see this time of year because everything was still dead and not much plant life was blooming yet. I bet by the end of May-September this place is probably beautiful.

Toledo Botanical Gardens is my refuge. Every season is absolutely amazing. I first visited the gardens in the spring. Trees were blossoming, grass coming alive again! I never stopped going after that. Summer: the beauty was astounding with everything in full bloom! The swans and ducks were in the ponds and geese walking in the grass. I hated to see... More

Hidden gem, quiet, easily walkable. Nice combination of plants and outdoor sculpture, all very well done. Can pretty much see it all in an hour or so. Free admission and a gift shop
