Nice afternoon stroll, great place to take a book and read for a few hours among all the great plantings. Will go back in spring and enjoy all the fresh blooms.

“City Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

These gardens pack many wonderful exhibits into an urban space. The gardens are always beautiful and the sculpture exhibits add even more dimension. Don't miss their Christmas light displays or their concerts.

“Beauty even in the changing seasons”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012 via mobile

Showed up at Botanic Gardens on a day that it was a free day! Who knew? It would've been worth it anyway. I also had a Groupon for the Botanic Gardens (that I haven't used yet) so the bonus is I get to go back again!!!

Many of the flowers are withered. There is still beauty in the landscape. There's different vignettes and areas that are just gorgeous in the fall colors.

They were setting up some of the Christmas lights in the areas. But with Thanksgiving only three weeks away I can understand that.

It was a nice way to spend some time wandering around in the garden.
