The Toledo Botanical Garden is beautiful any time of year. The gardens and flowers in the summer are so pretty. Nice place to have lunch and walk around the grounds! Love the cute little gift shop with all local artists work!

This is a very beautiful and inviting botanical garden showcasing the varied flora of Ohio and the Oak Openings region. It is a great place to spend a few hours learning of and enjoying the many plants. There are also a number of craft houses in their village.

The smell of fresh flowers, streams with fish, birds flying overhead, intriguing landscaping, and one heck of a art fest location. A great change from the usual.

The garden is small but has a number of featured plant collections and sections. It's also completely free to visitors. I visited this time for the modest dahlia bed. It's the size that's modest.
