Beautiful day for a walk through the gardens. You take it at your own pace. We stopped to sit on the benches and take in the beauty. Thr flowers were pretty and we liked watching the ducks on the pond. There are also fish. It was relaxing and a nice way to spend a couple of hours. Maybe next time... More

the Botanical Garden always has something going on. The Art Festival, First Sundays, Jazz on the lawn, stained glass classes, etc, etc. Great place if you love flowers, not large, but impressive.

I liked the relaxing feel of the park. There was a lot to look at! We saw a mother duck with 7 baby ducklings in the stream. Peaceful. And, it's free!!!

Attended a wedding at Toledo Botanical Garden. Beautiful flowers, herbs, and other ornamental trees. Could use more directions for guests, or a pathway to follow for best experience.

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.
