We visited on martin Luther King holiday. The parking lot was full, we had to park on the street. It was crowded inside, which detracted from our visit. Lots of kids running around. Best to go mid week, when it isn't busy.

I grew up in Buffalo and during a visit to the area last Easter, I decided to bring my kids and husband to the Botanical Gardens. I myself hadn't been in a very long time, so it was almost like seeing it the first time myself. We are not gardening experts, but we appreciate beautiful and unique plants. There were... More

I was visiting Buffalo at Xmas and my parents wanted to take me here. I had been once before in a May visit and viewed the outside then too - not much more than a couple of acres of common Nursery plants with no landscape features. This visit was to see the Xmas theme. Most of the attraction was the... More

We visited just before Christmas and the seasonal displays were beautiful.There were huge groupings of colorful poinsettias. They had decorated many of the trees and plants with seasonal items so it made for a fun visit. We've been there in the summer and spring to enjoy similar seasonal displays. It a very nice facility and worth a visit if you're... More

Great friendly place and saw several amazing plants that were completely new to me. Massive glass houses are wonderful. Set in a great park.

With the restful background music playing behind us, we sure enjoyed meandering through the glass houses and viewing this wonderful collection here in Buffalo. The 300 mile journey was well worth it. The permanent palm tree and fern exhibit served as the perfect backdrop for taking photos of the ribbon winning orchids. The timing of the blooming of these beautiful... More

We were on a long road trip and these gardens were our first stop. So glad we chose to enjoy this beautiful and beloved garden. Front staff were so kind and excited for us to enjoy our visit. What can I say, go here and you will love seeing all the varieties of plants and flowers. So glad we did!

We have visited the botanical gardens for many, many years. It's always beautifully done with excellent botanicals to view. It's a lovely place to spend a quiet afternoon in the summer and especially nice during the winter when the snow is outside. It's romantic place to walk with somebody special. It's a nice place to spend a moment of quiet... More
