This garden is great for a relaxing walk to take in nature. Best done in the warmer months. There is construction going on to make 2016 even a better experience.

The West Virginia Botanic Garden is a hidden gem tucked unassumingly off of Tyrone Road in the Cheat Lake end of town. There are several trail options taking you on short hikes through the area. My son, a birder, loves to come here early in the mornings to see lots of birds. We've attended a few of the guided walk... More

Go here -- especially if you want a Morgantown treat. Stunning flowers, trees and tricks -- like the giant surprise bird. Easy walking, even for this 70 year-old lady with bad knees. A fine way to stroll with someone and have a private chat.

If you are a lover of flowers and plants then you need to be here late spring and all of the summer, a photographer dream and so well laid out to walk, explore or just sit awhile.

Lovely outdoor garden. My sister had her wedding (small 25 people or so) here last weekend. It was gorgeous, plenty of parking for our small group and even though it rained, everything was gorgeous and in bloom.

You have to walk down a looooong steep hill from the parking area (lower one was closing really early which sucked) and then there wasn't much in the way of flowers there. Staff was leaving and warned us of car break ins at the upper lot! Disappointed. Not sure I would call it a botanical garden, more like a walk... More

Came to the botanic garden for an afternoon "hike" and was more than satisfied with the beautiful vegetation, animals and overall atmosphere of the gardens. Well maintained paths and easily maneuverable trails make this a great location for children, adults, older adults and dogs. You can just do the reservoir loop or spend hours exploring the various trails the seeing... More

This is a wonderful place to truly experience and enjoy nature. You can stroll, sit and read or simply ponder while surrounded by beautiful flowers. Or you can run or jog the many trails. Great place for families, couples, singles, anyone that loves nature!

This is a small garden that is still being worked on every day. Every time you go there is something different because of the work that is happening all the time. This is not a big elaborate place but almost like a walk in the woods. I loved it and many other friends love it too.

When one wants to get out of the city proper this place is easy to get to and has a great place to enjoy nature and have a calm place to do it.
