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.

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.
