This is not only located in a great park with lake, which I grew up coming to play and picnic. But has some great gardens with various things blooming at different times, you need to keep track of what is in bloom to fully enjoy, for example extensive varieties of roses and iris. I also love attending the concerts held... More

It was unbearably hot on the day we visited, so we did not see all of the gardens. We headed straight for the kids area and covered that first. The kids area is excellent and was enjoyed by kids of all ages in our group. We briefly hit a few other areas before the heat drove us back inside. Based... More

This is a very nice park. It's not at the level of the St. Louis garden...but it's good. You have time your visit or you won't see much. Early spring you can see lots of bulbs blooming. If you show up mid April all you'll see are spent bulbs and just the greens of returning perennials. If you wait until... More

I love going to the Botanic Gardens. They are beautiful. Right now, they are redoing the rose garden, so it should be beautiful when it is complete. My Big Backyard is one of the best features in the gardens. It is geared towards the kids. They have little buildings that look like giant birdhouses and buildings where kids can play... More

Very nice and well thought out. The interactive area for kids was the most impressive area we have seen. Both my wife and I noticed that the gardens themselves needed some TLC with weeds taking over some of the displays. We are garden members in St Louis and used our membership for free access. The building is well set for... More

I love botanic gardens. The peacefulness, the quietness are things that are so hard to come across in urban areas. But the size of the garden was something unexpected. It is huge! It's very creative too. There are many sculptures and many areas, I have no doubt that there must have been places I couldn't even visit and I was... More

We visited the Botanic Garden with our children and surprisingly it wasn't crowded. The kids could run and found all kinds of neat things in the gardens. They have lots of "sculptures" made from old stuff the kids thought was super cool. The whole place is really big too. Make sure you've got plenty of time to see it all.... More

The Botanical Gardens are a great place to see seasonal flowers in bloom and participate in a growing list of activities. The gardens themselves don't compare to more famous and more expensive gardens. However, they are one of my favorite places to visit or to have a meeting or to see a gallery exhibit.
