We came here to visit the lithophane museum, which is right on the grounds, then stayed to enjoy the good weather. I have been to far more impressive botanical gardens visually, but those were also expensive. This was free and pretty in a simple way. The roses weren't much to look at this time of year, but the dahlias were... More

This is just a nice tranquil park to walk and take in all the beautiful flowers and artwork. The art festival is a must to do.

I liked the way the gardens were layed-out, and labeled. It was a very easy walk with areas to sit when needed. I would have enjoyed more shopping opportunities. We went on a week-day and I believe the week-ends have more to offer.

I went to this garden with my wife and my 4 children (Ages 2, 5, 9, and 13) for a day of peaceful relaxation and observation and I am in awe at how rude and snobby the people there were. I had one little girl ask me for $100 and I had a male juvenile (Approximately 16 Years) ask me... More

This was a last-minute decision to head to the garden before we could check into our hotel. I'm glad we did! The grounds are very large, with most being manicured lawn; very picturesque with the rolling hills. The gardens that are laid out and tended to are small but still beautiful. And there's enough of a diversity between the garden... More

Calling the Toledo Botanical Garden a "hidden gem" seems cliche, but in this case it's the perfect description. As mentioned in other reviews you might not even notice it's there unless you were looking for it. And you should look for it, because it's well worth visiting. And as nice as the gardens are, there is no admission fee! Our... More

In the midst of homes and retail establishments, tucked away, is Toledo Botanical Garden. It is an oasis that is just a couple minutes off the beaten, busy road. The beautiful gardens are complemented by a variety of different structures. The transition from one area, the rose garden, for example, to a quiet path, or herb garden, is seamless. You... More

This is a lovely spot in the middle of a highly developed residential area. There is no admission charge, but lots of parking, beautifully laid out gardens and a small but cleverly stocked gift shop. Too bad none of the soda machines worked, because the soda in the gift shop costs more.

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.
