Good for little ones

Kids loved it! They have a train exhibit that is really cute. And it's close to Our Lady of Victory where you can see an amazing church.

Good to see the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens always seems to be striving for growth itself and uses innovative ways of presenting collections along many different lines. Our congratulations on being the scene of many a cosmopolitan event, from weddings to quiet walks with my son.

Had a good time here. There were 60 children from a daycare going through in small groups but they didn't disturb us.

Memories never fail us when family get together occasions bring us back to the Botanical Gardens in Buffalo.

Not much into plants but my sister and I visited this place recently. It was very cool. Like 20 bucks for the two of us to get in. We walked around and took pictures for about an hour. I'll bet people who are really into gardening would dig it. Get it? Dig it. Haha.
