I was ashamed to say that even though I live in Buffalo, I had never been to the botanical gardens, even though I've been to ones in other cities. I quickly realized that I really wasn't missing all that much. The building is a classic structure (and small), but it looks like it hasn't been maintained at all. Paint is... More

I would drive to Buffalo just to go here! (and to visit my daughter, heehee) Between the stunning architecture and the 1st class gardens I could so live here. Or visit every day :-)

The Botanical Gardens can be a forgotten attraction for many Buffaloians and visitors to the Buffalo area. Perhaps it is because of its location away from points of interest to the city of Buffalo, it tends to get overlooked as a place to visit. The Botanical Gardens are much more than a building to house plants. There are many reasons... More

I haven't been to the Botanical Gardens in quite awhile. It is the same beautiful building but with improvements made withing its houses. Its inhabitants include koi, topiary animals, and an incredible variety of plants from cacti to a chocolate tree. There is a vivarium, large checker game to play, a play area, for children, party/wedding area, and a waterfall.... More

We were just there (February 2014) and I love plants and flowers. The Orchids were in bloom and they had a wide variety of them. I took many great images and would love to go back during warmer weather so I can walk the grounds. Tip from a guy that does things like this often. Take you time an observe... More

It is very obvious that the botanical gardens is a wealth of learning experiences, warm and cozy, a breath of fresh oxygen coming out of the cold. My favorite room was the cactus room, reminding me of California where the heat is dry and the vitamin D intake plentiful on a sunny day. The architecture is wonderful, I must give... More

The poinsettia show was awesome. Never knew that there were so many colors and how beautiful they are, The other displays were also amazing and there were several plants and cactus that never saw before. It was worth the visit. It takes almost 2 hours to look at everything, There is also a children's play area, It is worth the... More

Our 1st visit to Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens took our breath away we were so impressed by the lovely spectacular greenhouse displays especially the orchids, palm dome, railway, poinsettias. It was such a wonderful escape from the wintery weather outdoors. Admission isn't expensive $6 senior, $7 adult. A definite must see while staying in the area. Don't forget... More
