“Very nice small garden.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Small garden that is easy to walk around. Many interesting plants and the small greenhouse is very nice during holidays.

I believe this facility allows wedding services and is a nice place to spend an hour looking at all the different plants.

“Worth the money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

The fee to get in the park is minimal and makes sense since it costs money to operate the gardens. I think Peoria is very lucky to have a such a beautiful botanical garden. Thank you, garden volunteers for all your hard work! I highly recommend taking the time to visit the gardens. It is a nice place to go on a date, to take the family, or to go and relax.

There are so many different kinds of flowers and things to look at. It is a very relaxing place and perfect for amateur photographers. My kids even like going there.

“Small Garden big cost”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

I was very surprised it cost $$ to get into the small park. Seems like a bad idea for such a small park to charge people to walk around. shame
