This is a great spit to take a hike. Especially good with young children. A beautiful spot just to take in WV's natural beauty.

This Botanic Garden is outside the city limits but a great place to take your dog for beautiful walk! Head out there on a nice day and bring a picnic with you!

Our neighborhood doesn't have any walking trails nearby so we are always looking for new places to hike or stroll. This is our second visit to the botanical garden, the last one was in the fall. March does not have the beautiful autumn bloomers but it boasted a chorus of frogs and warblers. We loved the giant hawk crafted with... More

Parking at several points of entry to the gardens is easy to find. Seasonal displays and special events are great ways to get introduced to these natural gardens. Peaceful walks and information posted along the way to tell you about the history. For a relatively new nature spot, they are improving it every season and the birds and flowers are... More

This isn't a botanical garden in the classical sense. It is a lovely wooded area with meandering trails. We were in town visiting and had my dog, so this was a nice dog-friendly place to spend some time. There is a flat loop around a reservoir that was closed for repairs when we were there, about 0.72 miles long.

This "botanical garden" is anything but a botanical garden, in the traditional sense of the word. The only clearly defined area was a lovely butterfly garden that lived up to its name ... it had gorgeous flowers with many types of butterflies, native bees, and flies. The park is beautiful and that vegetation is reclaiming a lakebed of a reservoir.... More

A great place to go to hike. The only disadvantage is that you have to walk up and down a gravel hill to get to and from this spot. So if it rains this makes it difficult. But they do all sorts of educational nature classes there. A great place to go and learn. Also a great place to hike... More

Somebody else said it: This place is a work in progress by a dedicated small staff and volunteers. I visited in November, so didn't see many flowers--a few at the entrance off the roadway.They offer a guided hike or two nearly every month of the year, and I took advantage of one of those. I learned alot, but didn't get... More

This was our visit to the Botanical Garden for a hike. Nice place. We enjoyed the well manicured gravel path (no ticks) and had a nice hike around the loop. There were also some other side trails abutting the main trail. Don't be alarmed if you hear gun shots- there is a gun club nearby. Distracting but not dangerous!
