What a Concert Venue! We watched ZZ Top and Blackberry Smoke with lawn seating and couldn't be more pleased with the view. They project the stage view onto large screens so everyone has a great show. There are port-a-potties stationed on two sides of the perimeter. Vendors are near the front. The walk in is quite long, and you need... More

I really liked to how pretty the trees looked and how nice the landscaping looked also. Nothing that I disliked about this place. I also really liked about this place that it was so peaceful looking with the water and bushes.

I live here and have had friends from Sweden to visit the Botanic Garden. They liked it so much that, when they returned with their teen, they wanted to visit, again. There is nothing dramatic. It is just a very large garden with many special spaces that reflect the time and effort of its many volunteers. The Japanese garden, the... More

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
