My experience at the Linneaus Teaching Garden started off rather negatively. I had, minutes ago, slipped on a walkway and cut/bruised my elbows and dirtied my clothes while walking through the rose gardens before the Teaching Garden. However, when a staff member saw my disheveled state she took me back to a washroom and helped me clean and bandage myself... More

Well designed and maintained garden. Veggie areas done very tastefully. Great ideas for edible landscaping and fantastic use of native OK plants and plants that work very well in Tulsa.

We take small school groups here to explore. The garden has an edible section, greenhouse, clean restroom, healthy koi, waterfalls, meditation garden, herbs, and grows new varieties every year. It is rarely busy and always a peaceful, educational experience.

Other reviews piqued my interest so off I went to see it. An amazing amount of plants in very limited space, creatively arranged. Especially enjoyed the vegetable plantings and fragrant herb garden. Any gardener or lover of plants will come away with ideas of how to incorporate plants into their living spaces. My visit on a lovely fall day, was... More

I had not been to the Linnaeus Garden in a few years and went recently. Loved it! The volunteers (totally run by volunteers and contributions) were friendly and helpful, the plantings really nice and the waterfalls and koi were lovely. Great for a quick trip, because it's small, you can do this in less than an hour.

Such a beautiful place with knowledgable gardeners on hand that assist you I with your questions. Everytime I visit I have just a bit more courage to do my own gardening, whether it be shrubs and trees, vegetables or flowers. A gem.

We always love going here. They have done a fantastic job of planting and caring for all the things here to look at. If you are in Tulsa I would suggest going here and walking around. IT is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and helpful explaining things.

The staff here is great and the surroundings are perfect for a picnic. There's so many different displays and the volunteers are very knowledgeable. Fun to check out the Tulsa Garden Center mansion and also the gift shop when you're in the area.

Had some free time and visited gardens. Pretty large complex with a variety of environments. I was surprised with the number of flowering plants they had considering that it was mid-August. Several families were picnicking, enjoying the large park. It is free. Plan on 3-4 hours, bring water, and wear comfortable shoes.
