I have visited this Garden numerous times over the past 8 years and absolutely love it. The garden is full of paved walked ways, is handicap accessible, wheelchairs on site, the ponds and thousands and thousands of flowers are gorgeous. I recommend grabbing a good book, blanket and heading to the gardens for a stroll and relaxation. The location is... More

Reminiscent of British formal gardens, this lovely set of walks was greatly enjoyed by myself and my two children (ages 7 and 9). Whether it was the Korean Bell, the spiral hill or the pagoda on the lake, we all savored the time in the outdoors. You can't ask for much more than that on a summer weekend afternoon. There's...

Visited in early July and enjoyed it. Lots of walking trails through nice gardens. It's a great way to spend a couple of hours.

Paved and mulched walkways take you through a gorgeous variety of environments from woodlands, lilly-padded swamps, ponds, and gardens. This is the perfect place to have a conversation while strolling through nature. We saw heron, geese, turtles, chipmunks, blue-tailed skinks as well as the creatures in the nature center terrariums. I was nursing a badly sprained foot and still was... More

We enjoyed walking around Meadowlark's lovely gardens. The Korean Bell garden is especially impressive. This is a destination for all age groups, and a photographer's delight. There are lots of benches and shady areas. There is a great variety of plants and flowers. The admission is only $5 for adults, less for seniors. We had been at Great Falls earlier,... More

The wedding invitation did not provide directions so the GPS was essential for finding this hidden gem. Substantial acreage envelopes trees, shrubs, flowers and ponds with sculpture scattered throughout. Some beautiful strolls through the garden with benches positioned for relaxation and full appreciation of a quiet arena in which to enjoy Nature. The Atrium is a wonderful setting for a... More

We have been members here for a year now and love the beautiful grounds that are kept well planted throughout the growing season with seasonal flowers. We make sure we visit every month to be sure we keep up with the plantings. There are benches and attractions throughout the gardens, including two ponds with a fountain and a gazebo in... More

I came here last summer and really enjoyed my visit. The visitor center and gardens are lovely and it's the perfect place to come for a nice relaxing couple hours. Some of the sections are nicer than others, but overall, the gardens are beautifully maintained. I'd come here for my morning or evening walk, but there's a $5 entrance fee.... More

Nice relaxing stop but more for enjoying the outdoors than for amazing gardens. We had expected larger formal gardens, so we were a little disappointed. Lovely stop for a family.
